STOP TPP
Posted On: Dec 29, 2013

Local LPAT Coordinators, Local Leaders, and members

RE: TPP ACTION
http://action.cwa-union.org/c/1372/letter/?letter_KEY=244

Presdient Obama is going to make a big push for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) the worst trade deal since NAFTA beginning on Jan 7.   Certainly if you are in a manufacturing sector this is bad news.  Yet, if you are in Telecom or Healthcare you will be directly affected too. Telecom will lose call centers and healthcare drug prices will skyrocket and it will be easier and more desirable to move certain services overseas.  WE CAN STOP THIS! 

Right now we have the support and votes in the House to stop this, but the President is going to be leaning heavy on our Representatives to change votes at the last minute.  WE CAN STOP THIS!

We need every CWA Leader and member to write a letter to the editor to their local newspaper (this includes your E-Board, LPATs, members and Stewards).  By pumping up the volume of letters we hope to get in at least a couple and maybe get papers to see an interest and do an OP ED piece on the ills of the TPP.

WE MADE IT EASY!  By putting all the facts in one place, along with single site to send your email to the papers. http://action.cwa-union.org/c/1372/letter/?letter_KEY=244 All you have to do is follow the directions below (or see the attached word doc) and you can write a letter and send it to the paper of your choice in just 15 minutes.

We want to track the letters you write so we can respond to groups that need more help in getting this action done.  So please let us know after you've sent it in. Please don’t delay; write the letter today!

If you get a letter printed please send us a copy or link back to me.

 So please follow the steps below (or download the attached word doc) and write a letter now. We hope to see letters by this week. 

All you have to do is click this link: http://action.cwa-union.org/c/1372/letter/?letter_KEY=244

And follow these easy steps:

Read the welcome message, it tells you how bad the TPP is

Scroll down and input your zip code

Click on the get papers button

Scroll down to see the newspaper names and radio circles above them

Click the radio circle above the paper you want to send your letter to (do not click the name of the paper, that’s the wrong link and will send you away from our campaign)

Step 2 opens up.

Here you will see a text box to write your letter in and several facts for you to use to the right of the text box.

You can click on a fact and it will move into your letter

After you write your letter fill in all the information below  including your phone number

Scroll to the bottom and click send.

If you run into a problem just call me at the number below.

It’s that easy, just remember to get a letter published it has to be in your own words, don’t just click on all the facts and expect your letter to get publish.  To help we are even attaching a fact sheet about the TPP to help you out or if you are a FaceBook user you can go to EXPOSE THE TPP for lots more info.
