CWA Local 1133 Officers testify!

On October 22, 2019 in Manhattan, CWA was joined for truly powerful testimony before the NYS Department of Health, as well as an inspiring rally by our coalition partners from the Public Employees Federation and the New York State Nurses Association in support of the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act and the need for staffing ratios.  CWA had 13 members testify, with District 1 Area Director Debbie Hayes leading off in the stakeholder testimony.  CWA Local 1133 President Deborah Arnet and Vice-President Kathy Kelly both testified.  CWA Locals 1101, 1104, 1111, and 1126 were also present.  The Coalition also had allies from the NYS Alliance for Retired Americans, the Labor Religion Coalition of NYS, Metro Justice, the Commission on the Public's Health System, Statewide Senior Action, and more.  There was a huge presence of CWA members from NYC locals in the hearing room and at the rally!
