CWA 1014 would like to wish all our union brothers and sisters a Happy and Healthy Labor Day.  As we leave the summer months behind and venture into fall, please remember that Labor Day is more than a paid day off - it is a reminder of why we fight.  This holiday is meant to honor all working men and women. This holiday honors our right to fight for fair and equitable working conditions. This holiday honors workers over corporate America.  

CWA Local 1014 would like to express our condolences on the loss of our union brother, Curtis Jenkins III. Curtis was a valued member of CWA 1014 and employee of Camden County.  He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Amber Pallante

CWA Local 1014 President

June 28, 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Effective July 1, 2019, I am resigning as president of CWA Local 1014. In accordance with the Constitution and Bylaws of Local 1014, Vice President Amber Pallante will assume the position as president on that date.

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.
