PRO Act (HR2474) DAY of ACTION!

On April 4, 2020 our CWA/AT&T wireline contract will be expiring. On February 4, 2020 in recognition of our two month mark we will be participating in a day of action for the PRO Act (HR2474).

The Pro Act (HR2474) is the most important piece of legislation to date that strengthens the laws that protect workers’ rights to join a union.  It also has provisions that gives us a stronger hand at the bargaining table, so it is very important that we all take time to contact our members of congress regarding the PRO Act!

On February 4, 2020 CWA Local 9423 mobilizers at your work location will be distributing thank you cards for our members of congress who have signed on in support and are cosponsors of the PRO Act. Please take the time to fill out the thank you card and return it to your mobilizer.
