the Calendar for Current Union Meetings and Events**
The issue of the
patches has finally been resolved. During 2012
bargaining with CenturyLink, CWA agreed to a Company
proposal that would make uniforms for customer
facing employees mandatory. In exchange the
Union bargained for a CWA patch to be placed on the
uniform. The premise for this is that the CWA
Logo would be permanently placed on to the uniform
shirt in a conspicuous place agreed to by the
We agreed at the bargaining table that CWA would
purchase a patch that would be agreeable to both
parties as well as would pay the cost of attaching
the patch to the garments. By putting the patch on
the uniform, the customers our members serve will be
able to recognize that their service is being
provided by a trained professional Union member.
We have made arrangements with a Union vendor to
provide iron-on patches. An online order form is
posted on the CWA District 7 website (link below).
Members wishing to order the patches can complete
the form and the patches will be mailed directly to
them at their home address.
The Union patch is the CWA logo and should go on the
right upper arm/sleeve of the uniform shirt
The Worst Trade Deal You've Never Heard Of!
The Obama administration
wants to fast-track the passage of the Trans-Pacific
Partnership (TPP). The TPP is the largest -
and worst - trade deal you've never heard of, having
been devised in secret by representatives of some of
the world's largest corporations.
It's so big and has the potential to do so much
damage, it's been likened to "NAFTA on steroids."
Watch this short video on TPP:
Will you help
spread the word about fast track and the TPP by
watching and sharing the video right now?
you've watched the video, please join the growing
chorus of Americans who are saying no to fast track
and the TPP by
adding your name to this petition from Larry Cohen,
president of the Communication Workers of America.
