In September, around 70 CWA members from all CWA Districts attended the 2019 CWA/USW Health, Safety, and Environment Conference in Pittsburgh. Members participated in plenary and workshop sessions throughout the week including sessions focusing on how to identify hazards in the workplace and how to get those hazards eliminated or fixed by the employer.
Micki Siegel de Hernández, CWA's Deputy Director of Health and Safety, spoke about CWA's District trainers and local union health and safety activists, who are the heart of CWA's health and safety program. She also spoke about the recent fatality of 24-year-old CWA member Kendrick Hudson at the Charlotte Douglas Airport and about the ways in which CWAers in Local 3645, District 3, and union-wide are fighting for safety improvements to prevent future accidents or tragedies.
