CWA Local 1014 would like to express our condolences on the loss of our union brother, Curtis Jenkins III.

June 28, 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

On Thursday June 13th, over 2,000 workers and allies swarmed the Trenton Statehouse Annex. They were there in support of passing a millionaires' tax and protecting collective bargaining rights.

Dennis Trainor, regional CWA vice-president, said "He [Sweeney] wants you to pay more. This is an attack on unions. This is an attack on collective bargaining. And when we’re attacked, we stand up, we fight back."

Several members of CWA Local 1014 were in attendance, as well as ally CWA Local 1040 and 1084.

CWA LOCAL 1014 - STAND UP! FIGHT BACK!

For several months NJ Senate President Steve Sweeney has been pushing a plan he calls the Path to Progress as a way to solve NJ's financial issues.  This plan should be called the Path to Poverty because is disproportionately places this burden on hardworking public sector workers.  In recent weeks Sweeney has introduced 27 bills in the NJ Legislature to implement this plan.  These bills, if enacted, would have devastating effects on the members of CWA 1014.  It is time to stand up and fight back!

CWA members from across the country this week attended the We the People membership summit, a gathering in Washington, D.C., of progressive organizations focusing on strategies to fight back against attacks on our democracy that aim to limit the participation of working people.

CWA Stewards from Locals across the state gathered in Atlantic City for training and inspiration in the union's drive for CWA Strong. The immediate goal is a campaign against State Senate President Steve Sweeney's latest attempt to destroy the current pension system for public workers in New Jersey. If successful, this would impact ALL public workers and retirees in the public worker pension system. 

Each year since 1997, the Local 1014 Scholarship Fund has awarded scholarships at the Local's March General Membership Meeting. On March 28, 2019, it happened again at the Local's meeting in the Camden County Emergency Training Center in Blackwood. The fundraising efforts of the Local 1014 Scholarship and Golf Tourament Committees came to fruition in the awarding of twenty $500 scholarships to the sons and daughters of Local 1014 members. Since the establishment of the fund, over $228,000 in scholarships has been awarded.

At the CWA Local 1014 Board of Trustees Meeting on December 4, President Karl Walko announced his upcoming retirement, saying, "Effective July 1, 2019, I will resign as President of Local 1014. Vice President Pallante will take my place. I am grateful to Amber that she has accepted this new role.
