The Orange Bargaining Committee continues to meet with the Company. As previously reported, we are making progress and have tentative agreements on many important issues. There are only a few issues left to reach an agreement, but they are important issues.
Members of CWA Local 1101 who work at AT&T Mobility - technicians, call center and retail workers - are fighting for a fair contract. All CWA members and retirees - please sign the petition at to tell AT&T CEO John Stankey: "I support good jobs for workers at AT&T!"
For decades, when our companies' telecommunications equipment had to be moved, it's been done by CWA-represented workers, ensuring the safety and quality of the work. One Touch Make Ready allows other companies (and their contractors) to move existing Verizon equipment - whether they're experienced with that equipment or not - and put our jobs at risk.

We are pleased to report that we continue to make significant progress at the bargaining table. Some important issues remain, but we are making improvements every day. We thank all of you for the continued support, mobilization and unity that has helped us along the way.
We had a lot of big wins in the 2022 budget fight. We won labor standards for $1.6 billion in broadband funding, billions for hospital funding to support health care workers, and full funding for the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies. How? Thanks to members' participation and hard work.
CWA Night is on! Saturday, July 16th at 7:05 pm. Join the Communication Workers of America and the New York Yankees for a fun-filled day at Yankee Stadium as the Yankees take on the Boston Red Sox.
After the last several weeks in which CWA members have made hundreds of calls and sent thousands of emails to advocate for our priorities in the New York State budget, the NYS legislature settled on a final budget - and we won on several major campaigns.
We take this opportunity to celebrate the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman confirmed to the United States Supreme Court. This historic moment will be cemented in the minds of women and young girls for generations to come.

As you know, our current collective bargaining agreement with Verizon does not expire until August 2023. However, Verizon, CWA and IBEW are jointly announcing today that we will be entering into three weeks of bargaining beginning May 16, 2022 to determine whether it is possible to agree on the terms of a contract extension. We will keep you posted on further developments. Dennis Trainor, CWA District 1 Vice President
