“If the discussion I am being asked to enter could in any way lead to my discipline or termination or impact my personal working conditions, I ask that a union steward, representative or officer be present. Unless I have this union representation I respectfully choose not to participate in this discussion."
The Company has made an offer to further negotiate over the "Special" EIPP. They have also sent an e-mail to all of our members attempting to negotiate with the membership to try and divide us. The Union has agreed to re-open negotiations but the Company's action make these negotiations harder not easier. We will of course keep you apprised of the situation as it unfolds.
This Tuesday, November 4th
Working Families Line
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
There is a critically important election on Tuesday, November 4th. Together, by voting on the Working Families line, we can send a message to all the politicians to listen to US, not just the CEOs, wealthy donors and lobbyists.
Who you vote for is your own decision.
Good Morning Everyone,
At 12:01 this morning, October 17th, CWA Local 1400 and IBEW are on strike against Fairpoint. The Company declared an impasse on August 27th and imposed the terms and conditions of those company proposals.
Please sign up
Sisters and Brothers,
As I’m sure you know by now, CWA President Larry Cohen has decided not to seek re-election at the 2015 Convention. I along with others tried to convince Larry to make a different decision, but in the end he has made his decision and we must all respect that. Larry Cohen is a good friend and I believe he has been a great president of our union.
Two weeks ago, the Company approached CWA with a special incentive offer for certain members to leave the payroll. This offer was identical to the offer that CWA rejected last year with a few exceptions.
Last year, the proposal was to make an offer to 4 titles in certain Force Adjustment Areas.

Dear Sisters and Brothers:
After much thought, I have decided not to seek reelection next June as President of our union.
I informed the Executive Board at our meeting today. I am confident that our Executive Board can support a strong candidate but this is not a campaign note and that decision is up to you.
In 1989, the CWA brothers and sisters in New York were on strike. One of the New York members from CWA Local 1103 walking the picket line was Chief Union Steward, E. Gerald Horgan. 25 years ago this August 15th (2014), Gerry Horgan was killed from injuries he sustained when he was run down by a “scab” as he walked a picket line while striking for health care benefits.
When news breaks, you want to know about it. And know what’s coming next.
The new CWA Movement Builder App for iPhone® and Android™ is now available. Download it today to receive updates about CWA rallies and event, chances to grow your union, and get breaking news.
