CWA District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings said residents of Houston were still reeling from Hurricane Harvey and new flooding.
"Many CWA members have lost everything. Some AFA-CWA Flight Attendants are homeless, the house of a CWA local president is completely underwater, retirees are affected. CWA is offering supplies, help, and services." Cummings said.
Cummings; Lisa Bolton, Vice President, Telecommunications and Technologies; and other officers have been pressing AT&T, CenturyLink, and other employers to do everything possible to help.
CWA President Chris Shelton is urging locals and members to donate to the CWA Hurricane Harvey Solidarity Fund. All donations will go to CWA members affected by the hurricane. You can donate to the solidarity fund here.
Online donations are preferred, but you can also send a check payable to CWA Hurricane Harvey Solidarity Fund to the CWA District 6 office at this address:
