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.

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."
