SMART Local 100 has just contributed $10,000 to CSA’s Emergency Assistance Fund, earmarked for CWA strikers at Verizon. “This support is very timely,” said CSA Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy. “With the strike now into its second month, we have helped 45 strikers to date with over $13,000 in payments for utilities, medical bills, car notes, food and other emergency needs. It’s our job to help them stay out one day longer so they can win a great contract.” McKirchy also thanked members of the Newspaper Guild 35/CWA at the National Association of Social Workers whose members ran a second food drive. You can help by clicking here for a secure on-line donation option or make a check payable to Community Services Agency and earmark for CWA strikers in the memo line; send to 888 16th Street NW, Suite 520, DC 20006.
