The company has held a promise for over 46 years that they will always protect the union workers jobs from being cut in favor of outside contractors. But, since the merger of CenturyLink and Level 3, Jeff Storey has made movements to weaken the unions and replaces those workers with contractors. Enough is enough and its time we all say loudly that we will not standby quietly as we see our jobs removed which hurt our families but also our customers.

CWAers Stop Work to Take A Stand Against Racism and Police Violence
On Thursday June 10th, CWA members across the country participated in actions to take a stand against racism and police violence. Many members stopped work for 8 Minutes and 46 Seconds - the length of time the Minneapolis police officer who viciously murdered George Floyd had his knee on his neck. 

CWA members have supported the protests his tragic killing has sparked across the country, and started conversations with each other about how to dismantle racism. 

Visit our Facebook page, where we will be posting photos as they come in.

In the past few months Centurylink has declared surpluses in many titles. For some reason Minnesota is being hit the hardest. The Locals continue to fight these lay-offs, and to assist members in navigating the Force Adjustment Process. The Process is complex and the company no longer takes the time to make the options clear. In April we lost the Dispatch center, and on July 15th we lost the entire CFS call center when the company moved the collections work to Phoenix Arizona. Many members took the VSPP offers and left with the enhanced package. 

With only two weeks remaining until the lay-off date, on May 6th the company canceled the force adjustment for most of the remaining Technicians in the Fancilli organization. We believe this was largely due to the strong stance by the Technicians to hold out until the end and pressure the Locals in Minnesota put on the company. See Letter to the PUC. The company also eliminated the contractors. 

However, on July 1st CenturyLink once again declared a surplus in the titles of Broadband/Network Technician, CDT, CSS. 
SO HERE WE GO AGAIN! 

If you affected by these latest surpluses, we are asking that you please provide your personal cell number to your union steward or send it to us via email. If you need help with understanding the Force Adjustment Process please let us know. 
We will continue the fight for our jobs, and for our customers.
