Strike support makes the difference
Past due medical bills…electric service cut-offs…missed child support payments…no food on the table…striking Verizon workers are being squeezed financially after being on strike for five weeks. And while negotiations have resumed thanks to prodding by the Secretary of Labor, there’s no settlement yet “and the needs of these brave members are increasing daily, and will last once they get back to work with a good contract,” says Community Services Agency Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy. CSA has already given out thousands of dollars helping striking workers cope with emergency needs. You can help by clicking here for a secure on-line donation option (we assume anything coming in lately is to be directed to strike support) 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. All contributions tax-deductible. Or you can donate directly to CWA. “Thank you!,” says McKirchy. “Solidarity works; as long as it takes!”
