Communications Workers of America (CWA) members today mobilized in Camden behind City Hall, where members of CWA Local 1014 (city workers) and Local 1084 (Camden Board of Social Services) called for fair contracts.
The day of action represented the first time both locals were out together.
“Our two locals have been fighting some of same people and on behalf of the same issues for far too long. We’re sending a strong message that we’re now united and powerful,” said George Jackson, President CWA 1084.
“Our members are fed up with being beaten down and disrespected. We’ll keep fighting for justice for as long as it takes,” said Karl Walko, President CWA 1014.
At its core, said a source close to the action, the rally was about winning union contracts that improve standards for workers in Camden.
