January 2020 Bargaining Round-Up


CWA reported from the T&T Conference in Orlando:

At the conference, 200 delegates and CWA leaders showed their solidarity with Nokia workers who are fighting to secure a fair contract that provides for job and retirement security. Cecil Roberts, President of UMWA and guest speaker at the conference, pledged his support for the workers' fight.

The uphill battle with Nokia is just another example of why we need labor law reform like the Pro Act. Nokia's plan to eliminate the entire bargaining unit and replace it with contractors – while at the same time securing millions of taxpayers' money on federal contracts for 5G deployment – is a slap in the face to hard working men and women at Nokia.

Bargaining with Nokia is set to resume on February 11.
