Local 1014 shared the 2018 District One COPE (Committee on Political Education) award with Locals 1038, 1040 and 1084 for the 'Camden Workers Rising" program and our direct collective action in the fight for a $15/hour minimum rate for Camden County Library workers. Library workers who were making as little as $8.92/hour before the contract settlement last year will make $15/hour starting in January 2019.

When Local 1014 Vice President Leah Hicks completed her last term and retired last October, President Karl Walko asked Amber to run for Vice President on his slate. He knew, from the campaign at the Library, she had what it took to be a union leader. Amber and the entire slate were elected without opposition.

In a May 10 morning break-time rally with the theme "Camden Workers Rising", members of CWA Local 1014 and 1084 joined together in support of their negotiating teams. The Local 1084 contract with the Camden County Board of Social Services and the Local 1014 contracts with the City of Camden expired on 12/31/17. The rally, held outside City Hall and the Board of Social Services offices in downtown Camden, brought workers from the City and County together. Together they chanted "Who Are We?, Workers Rising".

Each year, Local 1014 awards scholarships to high school seniors pursuing advanced education (college or technical school) who are the son or daughter of a Local 1014 member. This year's scholarship recipients were acknowledged at the union's March 27 General Membership Meeting. Eighteen students each received a $500 scholarship. In addressing the parents and students, Scholarship Committee Chair Valerie Castagna noted that, as in the past sixteen years, each eligible applicant received a $500 scholarship from the Local.
