Stay Informed

It is with great excitement the Orange Bargaining Team can announce that we have a Tentative Agreement with AT&T. The Bargaining Team has met or exceeded all of our goals. We could not have done this without your support and mobilization. Details of the Agreement and the process of ratification will follow shortly. Thank you all again for standing with us through this process!
As we continue bargaining, wages remain one of the last obstacles for a fair and equitable contract. We have been stuck on wages for a couple of weeks, but we are finally seeing the company moving in the right direction. In spite of all the negative activity in the economy, AT&T and their executives continue to prosper. The company needs to share that prosperity with its workers and not keep it all for themselves.

New York City area film and television Parking Production Assistants and Parking Coordinators, ratified a new contract with significant improvements to wages and standards.

On June 9, 2022 a group of freelance post production coordinators in New York unanimously voted for union representation with the Communications Workers of America (CWA), becoming the first post production coordinators in New York’s motion picture industry to win formal union representation. The workers, members of CWA Local 1101, filed for separate National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) elections at eight major studios.

As you already know, CWA IBEW and Verizon began meeting for a three week period to attempt to negotiate the terms of a possible extension to the collective bargaining agreements that are set to expire in August 2023. We have agreed with the Company to continue meeting for the rest of this week and if necessary, to extend the negotiations into next week.
Thank you to the hundreds of Local 1101 members and retirees who responded to our call to action these past two weeks to block One Touch Make Ready and protect union jobs. WE WON! Did your emails make a difference? THEY DID! As the NYS legislative session closed, the NYS Assembly voted unanimously to pass our bill to protect our jobs and stop dangerous One Touch Make Ready regulations!

World Trade Center Health Program and Victim Compensation Fund

Did you work at or near Ground Zero following 9/11? It's not too late to register for the World Trade Center Health Program and the Victim Compensation Fund.

If you lived or worked near Ground Zero following 9/11, and never registered with the World Trade Center Health Program and/or the Victim Compensation Fund, it's not too late. You may have seen mention of a July 29, 2021 deadline, which applied to people with a 9/11 related illness certified by the WTCHP prior to July 29, 2019 who needed to file a VIctim Compensation Fund claim by 7/29/21. But if you never registered with the WTCHP, or are registered with the WTCHP and have not registered with the VCF, you can still do both. Click here for more information.

Do I have a form on file at Local 1101 showing that I worked at/near Ground Zero in 2001/2002?
