Know Your Weingarten Rights!

If an employee has a reasonable belief that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what he or she says, the employee has the right to request union representation. Management is not required to inform the employee of his/her Weingarten rights; it is the employees responsibility to know and request.

"If this discussion can in any way lead to me being disciplined, I respectfully request union representation before I answer any questions"

Protect yourself! Learn it, use it!

A Message From The President

The Executive Board welcomes all Communications Workers of America, AFL,CIO Local 1120 members to our web page. The purpose of this web page is to provide a means of supplying information about our local and labor issues.    To all cwa local 1120 members. I want to thank all of my fellow union brothers and sisters for their commitment, and determination in keeping our local strong. Together we can overcome any challenge that we may face.

Frank J. Fauci Jr.
President, CWA Local 1120


 We must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.
Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote.”

Martin Luther King

CWA And IBEW Standing Strong

Feb 5, 2015

Nearly 2,000 CWA and IBEW members across New England have held the line for 112 days. Let's help them continue to stand strong this winter, as they strike for good jobs and quality customer service in their communities.

Contributing to the IBEW-CWA Solidarity Fund helps striking workers pay for necessities like health care, shelter, transportation, and fuel to heat their homes during these cold, snowy months.

Every little bit helps. While CWA members have a strike fund to fall back on, our IBEW brothers and sisters have nothing.

You can send a check to:

IBEW-CWA Solidarity Fund
c/o IBEW Local 2327
21 Gabriel Drive
Augusta, ME 04330

Or you can give online by clicking here.

Thanks to your generosity we have already collected more than $250,000 to lend a hand to workers like Mike Pallozzi, an IBEW Local 2327 line technician from Windham, Maine. Recently, during a brutal cold snap, where temperatures dipped below zero, Pallozzi ran out of heating oil and one of his pipes burst.

"If it weren't for the Solidarity Fund, I couldn't have filled up my oil tank and paid for the repairs," said Pallozzi, who has worked for the telephone company for more than 28 years. "It's hard being on strike any time, but during a New England winter it's a killer. The incredible support that we've received from people all over this country is helping to keep me and my coworkers going. We are so grateful for the solidarity."

Stop Fast Track

Call Congressman Maloney: Thank Him for

Opposing Outsourcing!

Say NO to Fast-Track for TPP

Congress is set to vote on a massive outsourcing trade bill in the next 75 days. This deal, called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will directly impact our ability to negotiate fair contracts this year. All jobs are tradable – including call center work – and this deal will move jobs to Vietnam & Malaysia.

Congress has to hear from us – not just from corporate CEOs.


Dial 1-888-966-9836 and use the script below (feel free to leave a voicemail, if necessary!):

“I live in New York’s 18th Congressional District, and I was proud to hear that Congressman Maloney has been defending workers by opposing Fast-Track for TPP. It’s a corporate trade deal that will outsource American jobs and further exploit workers overseas. I urge the Congressman to continue standing strong and

vote NO on Fast-Track for TPP.
