Solidarity Rally for IUE-CWA Local 81359/81380 Members in their Fight for a Fair Contract

Our efforts over the past seven years have made the flawed Trans-Pacific Partnership deal deeply unpopular. Because activists like you tirelessly wrote letters, signed petitions, marched at rallies, introduced resolutions and so much more—even while facing almost insurmountable odds—elected leaders in Washington, D.C., recently confirmed that there is no path forward for the TPP.
These workers made the difficult decision to strike because they are committed to preserving good solid jobs here in our communities. They are fighting for a fair and equitable contract with Momentive Performance Materials and THEY NEED YOUR HELP! *UPDATE* Donations can be mailed to: CWA District One 80 Pine Street, 37th Floor New York, NY 10005 PAYABLE to: CWA District One Hospitality Committee (In the memo section please write Momentive Strikers donation).
