WORKERS COMPENSATION IS UNDER ATTACK.  THERE ARE PROPOSED CHANGES TO WORKERS COMPENSATION GUIDELINES ALONG WITH REGULATORY PROPOSALS THAT WILL RESULT IN DRASTIC BENEFIT COSTS FOR INJURED WORKERS.  PLEASE GO TO LOCAL 1108’S WEB PAGE (CWA1108.ORG) AND SIGN THE PETITION TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST THESE TERRIBLE CHANGES.  YOU MUST GET INVOLVED, THESE ARE OUR BENEFITS.

ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2017 THERE IS A VOTE ON WHETHER TO HOLD A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION.  THIS VOTE IS DONE EVERY 20 YEARS.  A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION WOULD ALLOW THE ENTIRE STATE CONSTITUTION TO BE CHANGED.  THIS WOULD ALLOW THEM TO GET RID OF IMPORTANT WORKERS SAFETY LAWS, TAKE AWAY THE RIGHT TO PUBLIC EDUCATION, AND EVEN TAKE AWAY OUR RIGHT TO COLLECTIVELY BARGAIN.  CWA ALONG WITH NYS AFL-CIO AND MANY OTHER UNIONS ARE SUPPORTING A NO VOTE.  I URGE EVERY MEMBER ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2017 TO FLIP THE BALLOT OVER AND VOTE NO.
