The State Senate and Assembly has issued a proclamation honoring CWA Local 1040 for sponsoring the “Labor of Love Community Day”, and for the Union’s “abiding strength and profound commitment to the traditions of the Labor Movement, bringing working men and women together in efforts to achieve economic and social justice.”
