MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS ARE SCHEDULED EVERY 2ND THURSDAY OF THE MONTH AT 8:00PM
This June, CWA 6143's Legislative Committee endorsed 5 candidates for local government that have a track record of being pro-union and pro-workers rights. Through phone banking and getting out the vote efforts, we were successful in helping three of the five candidates get elected to local office including William “Cruz” Shaw (District 2), John Courage (District 9) and our new Mayor, Ron Nirenberg.

Red means sacrifice.
Red means solidarity.
Red means CWA power.

We wear red on Thursdays in memory of CWA Local 1103.  Chief Steward Gerry Horgan, our union brother was run down on a picket line in Valhalla, NY, during the 1989 strike at NYNEX.

 The four-month strike over health care benefits was just two weeks old when the daughter of a manager, who was working as a scab, accidentally hit Gerry with her car while breaking through a picket line.
