Striking Frontier Communications workers in Virginia got a welcome boost from Evening with Labor organizing award winners SEIU and UNITE HERE 23, who both showed up on the CWA picket lines last week. Picketing continues this week in Ashburn -- 6a-12p every day except Wednesday, when a rally will be held 8a-2p featuring CWA National President Chris Shelton (see Calendar). The strikers are asking supporters to join their picket lines and to donate to a solidarity fund to assist striking families in financial need. Tune into WPFW 89.3 this Thursday at 1p to hear a strike report back from CWA Local 2222 Secretary Treasurer Jeff Schmidt on Your Rights at Work.
