Last week, CWA local presidents from across Louisiana gathered at the State Capitol in Baton Rouge to meet with Louisiana Senator Troy Carter. Carter has introduced a bill giving the state the ability to claw back tax incentives when corporations don’t keep the employment promises they make. CWA Local 3411 president Matt Wood testified before the Senate Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Committee in support of the legislation.
