CWA Local 1120's newest members at the Monroe Free Library in Poughkeepsie, NY, unanimously ratified their first contract that provides wage increases and improvements in benefits and working conditions.

The staff joined the union in September 2014 after the library board attempted to block workers from organizing. They then launched their successful mobilization campaign with support from local elected officials and the community. In a NLRB election, they voted 11-0 for a union voice.

The unit includes workers in reference, circulation and children departments; clerks; and coordinators.

CWA members working for AT&T Southeast, AT&T Utility Operations, and BellSouth Billing have overwhelmingly approved contracts covering a total of 28,000 workers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

The new contracts will provide increases in wages, pension safeguards and improvements in job security, a better work/home life balance, and many other gains that will provide real economic improvement for workers.

CWA District 3 Vice President Richard Honeycutt thanked everyone involved in the ratification of the agreement between CWA and AT&T in District 3, from the bargaining team, mobilizers and the members.

"It was a hard fought battle for all and we were able to get an agreement that will benefit the members during this rapidly changing environment that we are seeing in the telecom industries," Honeycutt said.
