Last month, Amazon informed hundreds of workers that it will be closing its DEW8 facility in South Jersey and transferring up to 90% of workers to the nearby DJE2 warehouse. Shortly before the scheduled closure, however, associates learned that most will be moved to facilities farther away. Workers walked out this morning in protest. CWA, along with other unions and community allies, stood in solidarity with these brave Amazon workers.

Victory for CWA Local 1037 members!

Victory for CWA Local 1037 members!

Today in-home child care providers ratified a new collective bargaining agreement with the State of New Jersey, increasing their wages by as much as 64%! This is an unprecedented increase for hardworking, committed and educated workers in a notoriously low-wage childcare industry. This victory will have positive impacts for the entire childcare industry in New Jersey and nationally.

This victory is the result of a decade of union and community organizing which fostered a movement of childcare workers in New Jersey who understand that working conditions in the industry have direct consequences for our families and our children’s early development.

This victory is an example of the vision NJ Communities United and CWA Local 1037 discussed in March of 2012 when we created this community labor partnership . We celebrate all of the wins contained in the new collective bargaining agreement, but let us acknowledge the long term victory: a movement led by Black workers, Latino/a workers and wokers of color who provide services for the most vulnerable working class communities in New Jersey. We have the power to demand and secure the resources our communities need and deserve.

We are humbled to work with this incredible group who led this movement and secured this victory!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Attention CWA Healthcare Retirees. If you want to volunteer, here’s the place.
Important info on the ongoing Coronavirus developments for our New Jersey locals from CWA New Jersey, including some good information relevant to all of our members:
"What’s the bottomline? CWA is carefully monitoring the situation for our members. We are asking Employers to conduct themselves responsibly and we are particularly focused on making sure actions that protect our members and their families are being considered wherever possible.

We are asking our members to take responsibility to act prudently when they can (washing hands, self-reporting and self-quarantines, speak with your Local and with appropriate health professionals) and to cooperate with all efforts that are being made to keep the virus from spreading. We will continue to get information out to our members as we understand it and it is helpful."
Nurses and and certified nursing assistants in hospitals and nursing homes across the state are relaying “shocking concerns" about supply shortages as the coronavirus steadily spreads. On Wednesday night, representatives from six labor unions called on the Murphy administration to “ensure all healthcare facilities have the supplies, training materials, and staffing support they need to reduce everyone’s risk of exposure.” AFT Nurses & Health Professionals 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East District 1199J New Jersey Nurses Union JNESO CWA New Jersey
‪The Fair Work Week NJ coalition unveiled the New Jersey Fair Work Week Act yesterday.

A big thank you to Senator Loretta Weinberg, District Office of Assemblywoman Britnee N. Timberlake, and Senator Nia H. Gill for sponsoring this bill!

“Advocates view shift security as the next big progressive battle on the workplace front, in the wake of legislative victories over increasing minimum wage and improving paid sick leave.

‘New Jersey can do something about it,’ said Adil Ahmed of Make the Road New Jersey, which champions the rights of immigrants and working class families. ‘New Jersey can stop the most abusive scheduling practices, and make a huge difference for workers by updating our existing labor laws.’”

Fight for a Fair Workweek in New Jersey today! ✍️ https://p2a.co/3uavpFD

Researchers found that 59% of workers in various service industries receive schedules with less than two weeks notice, 81% have little or no input into their work schedules and 29% work on-call shifts, getting just a few hours’ notice of when they are expected at work. None of it is currently illegal and workers often feel powerless to push for change.

A law means economic security and a chance to balance work with life, family and school responsibilities for 500,000 NJ workers. Many thanks to Senator Loretta Weinberg Assemblywoman Britnee Timberlake, Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Senator Senator Nia H. Gill for championing this legislation.

HUGE news from our CWA New Jersey members - Yesterday NJ Governor Phil Murphy signed the NJ Call Center Jobs Act into law!

The law aims to protect call center workers and is the result of more than four years of hard work by CWA members who fought for it at every accountability session, electoral screening, and lobby day with legislators. 💪 Great work!
NJ Department of Human Services Commissioner Carole Johnson joined New Jersey Citizen Action Friday to decry the latest court ruling that threatens the Affordable Care Act and its benefits for New Jersey.

As Commissioner Johnson noted, "Governor Phil Murphy's Administration will always fight for quality health care. It's long past time to end the campaign against affordable health care."
