The New York State Nurses Association announced this morning that no tentative agreements were reached at Montefiore Bronx or Mount Sinai Hospital last night, and 7,000 nurses at those locations are ON STRIKE.
We have one last BIG update about our legislative work for 2022: earlier this year, the NY State Senate voted 60-1 and the State Assembly voted unanimously to pass our bill to protect our jobs and stop dangerous One Touch Make Ready regulations - and this week, Governor Hochul signed it into law!
This year the CWA-IBEW/Verizon Work and Family Committee implemented a new reimbursement program to defray the costs of text books and course materials related to secondary education. The reimbursement benefit is up to $600 per family for the calendar year.
On behalf of the CWA Local 1101 Executive Board we'd like to wish all our members and retirees, especially those who are veterans, a Happy Veterans Day. Thank you for your service, your commitment, and your sacrifice. Keith Purce, CWA Local 1101 President.
