Although the telephone workers were ultimately forced to settle for a much smaller wage increase than they had demanded, the strike had other benefits.

Thank You letter from Charles Byford, Brittney Byford's Dad:

Bret,

I would ask that you please pass this on to all of your Union Members.

Let me start out by saying, my family and I would like to thank each and every one for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. The out pouring of love we received from everyone is greatly appreciated. Thanks goes out to everyone for helping us deal with the tragedy of losing our daughter. Losing a loved one opens your eyes to see life in a different way. It allows you to realize that life is not only short but also a precious thing. Again, I want to thank everyone for their continue love and support; along with your thoughts and prayers.


Sincerely,
Charles Byford
22 State Support C&E

CWA strongly supports the use of social media sites to discuss and advocate for the important issues facing members and working families today. While these sites offer many advantages, they can also cause serious legal problems if they are not properly used and can lead to complicated legal proceedings as well as potential disciplinary action against employee users. To help avoid legal or other problems, our National office has developed these Guidelines for CWA members to consult when using social media. Please click on the title above to read and/or download the guidelines and share them with any and all fellow members.
