Celebrating after the NLRB vote count are Dominic Torres (who was illegally fired) with his 5 year-old daughter Deanna, Angelo Cerniglia and Local 1106 Secretary-Treasurer Frank Tallarine.
In an NLRB election this week, 31 instructors at Lincoln Technical Institute in New York voted 24-3 to join CWA Local 1106.
The instructors formed a very strong inside committee, and 17 people wore red CWA wrist bands every day. The campaign run by the union busting law firm Jackson Lewis LLP was no match for this group, who stood strong despite illegal terminations of three union supporters, constant threats and promises of raises at the last minute.
CWA Local 1106 Secretary-Treasurer Frank Tallarine was instrumental to this win.
