CWA Membership Poll is Open

E-mail Print PDF

CWA's political website, www.cwavotes.org, is live and our membership poll of Presidential candidates is open.

This is where you'll find information about all the declared candidates, along with an online poll for members to make their views known.

CWA President Chris Shelton said, "It's all part of the process to determine whether and how our union will endorse a Presidential candidate."

The poll will stay open into early December and will help determine whether a single candidate has overwhelming support from the membership. It is important that this poll reflect the views of as many members as possible, so make sure your co-workers know about the site.

The information also will be provided to members in the Fall issue of the CWA News, which members will receive in early October.

 

Christie Vetoes Bills to Fund NJ Pension

New Jersey Democrats trying to undo damage done to the state's public-employees' pension system met a familiar roadblock, Gov. Chris Christie wielding a veto pen.

Christie vetoed two bills that would have injected new money into the system and improved future funding. One bill called for a special one-time $300 million payment; the other mandated quarterly payments into the system. The state of New Jersey has not made a full pension payment since 1995. To make matters worse, Christie cut nearly $900 million from the budgeted state pension payment last year when he faced a $1 billion budget deficit.

"Even when the State has the money – or when it wouldn't cost a penny – Gov. Christie acts to deliberately harm the pension systems that 1 in 10 New Jerseyans depend upon," CWA New Jersey Director Hetty Rosenstein said.

Christie had signed a 2011 law requiring the state to do its part in restoring proper funding for the pension system, after forcing pension cuts for workers. But Christie reneged on the deal and in fact has vetoed more than $ 3 billion in pension payments from the budget in the past two years.

Shelton had the opportunity to raise several issues and gave the President an overview of bargaining covering CWA members this year at General Electric, Verizon, AT&T, United Airlines and others. Shelton also raised concerns about the need for action on the executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose campaign contributions, Malaysia's failure to address human trafficking and ways the administration can help move the German government on the need to address the treatment of T-Mobile US workers who are harassed for wanting union representation.
