CWA members at CenturyLink (LegacyQwest) in District 7 ratified a new contract by a 60 percent yes vote. For more information, go to http://www.cwadistrict7.org/.
Kaplan students come to the bargaining table.
Kaplan students recently visited negotiations to tell Kaplan it's time for a fair contract. Daniela, a current student, told Kaplan corporate, "If we want to learn English by the book, we can just buy the book and stay home. If we don't have a good teacher, we wouldn't have a good education. In Venezuela, we have benefits for part-time workers. Why you cannot have this for your most important people?"
Kaplan's English-as-a-second-language teachers in New York voted last year to join TNG-CWA Local 31003. They are in tough bargaining for a first contract.
