COMMUNICATIONS WORKERS OF AMERICA LOCAL 1108, PATCHOGUE, NY THURSDAY, MAY 25, 2017, DON DUNN SPEAKING

CONGRESS IS GETTING READY TO VOTE ON THE CHOICE ACT.  THE CHOICE ACT IS BAD FOR MIDDLE CLASS WORKING PEOPLE.  THE CHOICE ACT WEAKENS THE CONSUMER FINANCIAL PROTECTION BUREAU WHICH RECENTLY ENDED THE WELLS FARGO FRAUD ON WORKING CLASS PEOPLE. THE CFPB HAS RETURNED $12BILLION TO CONSUMERS WRONGED BY THE BANKS.  THE CHOICE ACT TAKES AWAY THE PROTECTIONS OF DODD FRANK.  IT ALLOWS FINANCIAL ADVISERS TO OFFER BAD ADVICE THAT BENEFITS THEM INSTEAD OF THEIR CUSTOMERS SAVINGS.  IT ALSO ENCOURAGES RISKY DECISIONS.  THE CHOICE ACT BENEFITS THE RICH AND SCREWS THE REST OF US.  PLEASE CALL 1-855-980-2352 AND TELL THEM TO VOTE NO ON THE CHOICE ACT.

THE LOCAL 1108 ANNUAL GOLF OUTING IS ON TUES., JUNE 13, 2017 AT 8:00AM, AT THE ROCKHILL COUNTRY CLUB.  PLEASE CONTACT THE LOCAL TO SIGN UP.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU VOTE ON THE PROPOSED BY LAW CHANGE.  BALLOTS NEED TO BE RETURNED TO THE PATCHOGUE POST OFFICE NO LATER THAN 8:00AM ON MAY 30, 2017.  IF YOU HAVEN’T RECEIVED A BALLOT IN THE MAIL PLEASE CONTACT THE LOCAL.

MONDAY IS MEMORIAL DAY, PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO REFLECT AND BE THANKFUL TO ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE ARMED FORCES WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES WHILE SERVING OUR COUNTRY.  ON BEHALF OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF CWA LOCAL 1108, I WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY AND SAFE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

REMEMBER TO WEAR RED ON THURSDAYS, TO WORK SAFE, BE ON THE JOB, DO A UNION QUALITY JOB, AND DO YOUR OWN JOB.  THANK YOU
