Retirees will phone bank after our 12:30P meeting at 334 Centre in Oak Cliff. We always make a party out of these things!

AT&T Protested!

Early April 28th, Communications Workers and their friends protested the national shareholders meeting of the mighty AT&T corporation.

AFL-CIO leader Mark York brought Lorraine Montemayor and others in solidarity. Workers Defense Project was among the many protesters. We demanded fair negotiations concerning pay, working conditions, pensions, and health care from AT&T management.

Build Our Digital Organizing Effort

Nirav Sanghani and Gene Lantz from Dallas joined union activists from Corpus Christi and Houston at a special training by tech expert Mark Maldonado of the Texas AFL-CIO in Austin on April 24.

The Dallas AFL-CIO was praised for excellent communications, but one-way communications is not what the labor movement needs today. We need two-way, back-and-forth, interactive organizing on-line, Maldonado told the trainees.

Even though we are just getting started, here are some of the things we did to help build our AFL-CIO political effort:

  • Created a sign-up "event" as a special web page
  • Created an "event" on Facebook
  • Publicized on Twitter
  • Sent out 157 texts to activists who have sent "@laborrel" to phone number 81010
  • Wrote this article on our web page to send out to 4,000 email activists

Digital organizing is only a part of the organizing that working people need. Telephoning and face-to-face contact are still the mainstays. But modern technology can help; consequently we need a committee working on it. We have barely begun to figure out all the ways we can advance labor's campaigns!
