Members of CWA's Legislative Political Action Team in Alabama worked hard to convince Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) to co-sponsor H.R. 1300, the U.S. Call Center Worker and Consumer Protection Act of 2017, bipartisan legislation to stop the offshoring of call center jobs. Brooks joined 18 other co-sponsors; Rep. Gene Green (D-Texas) was an original cosponsor and Rep. David McKinley (R-W.Va.) was the initial sponsor.
