E-ZPASS

E-ZPass workers in Staten Island, NY, through member solidarity and action including speaking out at MTA meetings in the community, reached a tentative four-year agreement that beats back concessions, provides for across the board wage increases across all departments, improves the absence plan, and adds union security language.

CWA Local 1102 members made a number of major strides in this agreement, some of them groundbreaking.

Congratulations to the CWAers and bargaining committee who worked so hard for this win, including CWA Local 1102 President Steve Lawton, Staff Reps Ricky Morrison and John Dempsey, and all of Local 1102.
