Tonight's CWA Town Hall Call starts at 7:30 p.m. ET.
At AT&T Mobility, our members took a stand for the right to sit, and won. It's all about bargaining rights, and AT&T Mobility activists fought hard to win this big change in working conditions. We'll hear about that from Local 9505 Steward Lily Pimienta, and from AT&T Mobility activist Lamar Banks on the Unity@Mobility training that Mobility workers are participating in as another way to build our union and our movement to win progressive change.
Verizon Wireless workers want those same bargaining rights. An overwhelming majority of employees from the company's seven Brooklyn retail stores signed cards saying they want to join CWA. On the call, we'll hear from Bianca Cunningham, a VZW activist who'll talk about workers' solidarity and determination, even in the face of an aggressive attack on workers' rights. Watch this great video.
T-Mobile workers are all too familiar with the tactics of harassment, intimidation and surveillance. But that hasn't stopped their fight for CWA representation. We'll also be talking with TU member and activist Amber Diaz who has put her livelihood on the line to help win get justice at work. With actor Danny Glover, Amber and UAW members have been meeting with students on college campuses and are building strong support for workers' rights.
CWA President Larry Cohen also will join us on the call. Will you?
