With the end of the legislative session last week, Florida CWAers succeeded in fighting off some of the most vicious attacks we've ever seen on working people. A pair union busting bills, SB 78 and SB 1014, threatened hundreds of thousands of public sector workers' union representation, including more than 3,000 CWAers.
This vile anti-worker legislation had the support of big money anti-union think tanks. To fight back, CWA members sent hundreds of letters, placed newspaper ads and put up billboards opposing the legislation, placed an op-ed in the Palm Beach Post, made hundreds of calls to their legislators, and held rallies on the ground to make it clear that CWA members won't tolerate these kinds of attacks on workers, now or ever.
