In Memory of Robin Young

Tuesday - December 29, 2020

It is with much sadness that I let you know that Robin Young, Local 2001 Secretary-Treasurer and WV CWA State Council President passed away late Saturday night after a very short illness, I would ask that you keep Robin's family in your thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. I will keep everyone updated with any additional information that is shared with me.

Trump Labor Board Upends Special Status of Union Stewards

Friday - October 02, 2020

On July 21 the Trump-appointed National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) eliminated the special legal protections enjoyed by union grievance handlers for the past 70 years. In the interest of promoting workplace “civility,” the Board announced that employers will no longer be restrained from disciplining or discharging stewards or officers who use profanity or engage in other “abusive” actions in violation of an employer’s enforced code of conduct, even when these actions happen in the course of heated meetings with management.

The new decision, known as General Motors, overrules scores of NLRB rulings permitting grievance representatives to engage in “zealous” advocacy.
