Now is the time to act. The New York State Senate is set to further deregulate telecommunication companies. This would be very bad for our bargaining strength, our jobs, and our customers. We cannot sit idle while our state government lays the groundwork for a race to the bottom for telecommunication customers and workers. The merger between Comcast and Time Warner is going to be a game changer. We must be proactive. Please read the attached flyer and call your representative. Get your coworker, husband, wife, brother, sister, mother, father, and neighbor to call also. The job you save may be your own.
The address below the State Senator will bring you to their district map (may have to copy and paste) if you are unsure who represents you. Call switchboard @ 518-455-2800 and ask for your representative.

CWA Social Media Policy Guidelines
CWA strongly supports the use of social media sites to discuss and advocate for the important issues facing members and working families today. While these sites offer many advantages, they also can cause serious legal problems if they are not properly used and can lead to complicated legal proceedings as well as potential disciplinary action against employee users. We have developed these guidelines for CWA members to consult when using social media to help avoid legal or other problems.
