CWA Local 1133

Take Action

Join us on Saturday, April 29th, at 10 a.m. at Chestnut Ridge Park when the Unions of the Western New York Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, will observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe jobs.  This year we will come together to call on employers in this country to provide safe and healthy work environments and pay fair wages.  We will celebrate the victories won by working people and commit to fighting until all workers have the freedom to form unions without the threat of retaliation.
