As bargaining for a new contract for Alcatel-Lucent installers gets underway next week in Washington, D.C., CWAers will rally outside the Alcatel-Lucent Test Center in Dublin, Ohio, one of the biggest installer locations in the company.
CWA Alcatel-Lucent installers are "fighting for our place in the future" and want to keep these highly skilled jobs from being contracted out.
Members of NABET-CWA Local 52031 who work at the House of Representatives Recording Studio ratified a four- year contract after more than a year of tough bargaining. The contract calls for workers to be paid back pay for the overtime earnings that the House had unilaterally and wrongly withheld to April 1, 2013.
The contract covering 1,600 workers at Frontier Communications in West Virginia has been extended through May 31.
Iowa's Woodbury County sheriff's master deputies and sergeants will get a 2 percent pay increase under a contract approved Tuesday. CWA Local 7177 represents 31 workers. Read more here.
