|CWA Local 1088|
Office Hours: Every Monday 5pm-7pm
In order to better serve our members and make resources and information more accessible, our Union office in Brick (35 Beaverson Blvd Unit 3C Brick NJ 08723) will be open every Monday 5:00 pm- 7:00 pm. At least one executive officer will be available to assist in research or guidance regarding workplace issues. This is a great opportunity for stewards to get more insight into their roles, as well as those who need more information regarding workplace issues (disciplines, grievances, etc.) in an informal setting. We also have coffea, tea, soda, water and snacks for those who wish to stop by. Hope to see you there!

CWA stands with the Standing Rock Sioux
Respect must be maintained to all peoples of all nations. When corporate profits are given precedence over sacred burial grounds and access to clean water, we must all take a stand for those in peril of losing such rights.

Shop Steward Training Wednesday, September 21, 2016 5:15 at the Union office
Want to see a change where you work?
Things won't change unless you get involved, let your voice be heard and affect that change. The best way to do that is to become a shop steward. Shop stewards represent employees at disciplines, write grievances when issues cannot be informally resolved, help maintain a growing Union membership, and bring health/safety issues to the attention of management to have them addressed. We will train and equip you with the knowledge to handle all of these responsibilities. Shop stewards are needed at all chapters. See your local union representative to get involved now.
