Tell the FCC: Don’t Kill Good Telecom Jobs

The Federal Communications Commission

Just last week CenturyLink announced they would be cutting 3,500 jobs, and a proposal under consideration at the Federal Communications Commission could make things even worse for telecom workers.

Non-union wireless companies like Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless want the FCC to make big cuts in the rates they are charged to connect cell phone towers to high-capacity data networks. Reduced revenue would make it more difficult for telecom companies to invest in broadband networks, leading to job cuts for CWA members, especially in rural areas.

Sign the petition to tell the FCC to protect good telecom jobs and investment in high-speed data networks.

I oppose the FCC’s plan to change Business Data Services rules to favor non-union companies like Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless over telecom companies that invest billions in high-speed networks and employ union workers.
