Call Center

I have BIG news: this afternoon, the New York State Assembly voted by a count of 93 to 19 to pass the NY Call Center Jobs Act! Since the bill already passed in the State Senate back in March by a vote of 58-3, this means that it just needs to go to Governor Cuomo to be signed into law.

This is a historic day for us, and one that’s been a long time coming. Since 2006, 40,000 call center jobs have disappeared from New York State thanks to greedy companies sending jobs to lower wage locations overseas and in other parts of the U.S. It’s long past time we stopped rewarding these companies. The 2017 Trump tax plan incentivized sending good jobs overseas, so this legislation is more critical than ever.

We’ve been fighting for years for legislation that would protect these workers and penalize companies that ship jobs out of New York, but we’ve been stopped again and again by anti-worker legislators who put corporations like Verizon and AT&T above their communities. Until now. In the 2018 Midterm Elections this past November, CWA members up and down the state came out in force to help elect a new pro-worker majority in the NYS Senate for the first time in decades, and now we’re reaping the benefits.

One of my biggest takeaways from seeing the NY Call Center Jobs Act finally pass today: elections have consequences, and our political action work is vitally important to keeping New York union strong.

I want to give special mention to our elected leaders who fought for this bill, Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal, and Senator Tim Kennedy; our community and labor partners who stood with us, including SEIU32BJ, the New York State Nurses Association, the Working Families Party, and others; and to Bob Master, Hae-Lin Choi, and our CWA District 1 team, especially to each and every one of our members who called legislators, traveled again and again to Albany to speak with legislators in person, wrote letters and postcards, and fought tooth and nail for years to make this bill a reality for New York’s call center workers. I couldn’t be more proud to be a CWA member today.

In solidarity,

Dennis Trainor
CWA District 1 Vice President

Subject: Guess who got a massive tax break this year
 

Brothers and Sisters,   

 

While  massive   corporations  like  AT&T,  CenturyLink,  and  Wells   Fargo  are  celebrating   billions 
in  tax  breaks,  tax  payers   are  frustrated  by  smaller   tax  refunds  and  stagnant  paychecks  and   

wondering  if they  will  even  have  ajob  a  year  from  now.   

 

Republicans  in  Congress  told  us  the  corporate  tax  cut  bill  they  passed  in  2017   would  push 
companies  to  create  jobs,  raise  wages   and  stop  offshoring,  but  it  didn't.   The  bill  was   a   

scam.  Corporations  ran  away  with  billions   of  dollars,  cutjobs,  failed  to  provide  promised  wage 
increases   and  continue  to  send  jobs  overseas.   

 

AT&T  CEO  Randall  Stephenson  was  one  of the  biggest  cheerleaders  for the  tax  cut,  saying 
AT&T  would  increase   investment   and  create  7,000  new  jobs.   Insteadthe  company  got  a  $21   

billion  tax  break,  cut  over  12,000  jobs,  and  keeps  sending   jobs  overseas   and  to  low-paid 
contractors.  Centuryl.ink  rewarded  executives   with  millions  in  bonuses   all  while  canceling   

bonuses   and  merit  pay  for  workers   and  eliminating   morejobs.  Wells   Fargo  benefited  more  from 
the  tax  cut  than  any  other  bank,  then  announced  that  it  would   cut  up  to  26,000  jobs.  

 

Thousands  of AT&T  workers  have  already  sent  handwritten   letters  to  their  members  of  Congress 
demanding   an  investigation  into  what  happened  to  the  billions   of dollars   in  tax  breaks  they  gave   

away  to  AT&T  and  other  corporations  that  keep  cuttingjobs.  In  response,  Congress  held  a 
hearing  with  CWA  President  Chris   Shelton   and  tax  experts   to  learn  about  the  effect  ofthe  tax  bill   

on  working   families.  

 

That  was  a  good  start,  but  now  Congress  needs  to  bring  CEOs  to  Washington  to  find  out  what 
they  really  did  with  their  tax  windfall.  Click  here  to  tell  Congress  that  it's  time   

to  investigate  where  billions  in  tax  breaks  for  massive  corporations   went.  Corporations   want  to 
increase  executive   pay,  reward  large  shareholders,   and  pursue  profits  at  any  cost-    they're  not   

looking  out  forus.  If we  want  a  better  future  for  all  working  people,  we  must  push  Congress 
to  hold  corporations  accountable  to  their  promises  and  end  the  corporate  tax  scam.   

It's  time  for  Congress  to  find  out  the  truth  about  what  happened.  Send  your  letter  now  to  demand 
in  investigation    https://www.actionnetwork.org/letters/tell-congress-investigate-where-billions-in-tax-breaks-went?source=LocalEmail

 

In Solidarity,   

 

Local   President

YOU ARE THE UNION

UNION BEGINS WITH

 YOU 

MOST PEOPLE FEEL THAT THE "UNION" IS THE BOARD, 

THE PEOPLE WHO "RUN" THE UNION. THIS COULD NOT  

BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. 

THE "UNION" IS YOU: YOU ARE THE ONE WHO 

ELECTS YOUR OFFICIALS TO REPRESENT YOU. YOU ARE 

THE ONE WHO HAS THE PRIVILEGE TO GO TO YOUR 

MEETINGS AND SPEAK WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND, TO LET

YOUR BOARD KNOW OF ANY GRIEVANCE YOU MAY HAVE. 

A STRONG UNION IS ONLY AS STRONG AS ITS MEMBERS. 

SHOW VERIZON YOU STAND BEHIND YOUR UNION, ATTEND 

MEETINGS, REPORT INFRACTIONS BY MANAGEMENT TO YOUR 

SHOP STEWARD OR LOCAL WHEN THEY OCCUR. YOU WILL 

NEVER AGREE WITH 100% OF WHAT YOUR LOCAL DOES OR 

DOESN'T DO. BUT, IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET PAST  

THAT AND CARRY ON AND CONTINUE FIGHTING FOR YOUR 

RIGHTS. REMEMBER, YOU ARE THE EYES AND EARS OF YOUR

UNION. WITHOUT YOU...THERE WOULD BE NO "UNION". 

REMEMBER AGAIN UNION STARTS WITH U...N...I...
