WW3-28-17 NNU Single Pay Campaign And CWA West AT&T Contract Fight

WorkWeek radio looks at the continuing fight for single payer and national healthcare with Deborah Burger a registered nurse and the Co-President of the National Nurses Union NNU which represents 150,000 nurses throughout the United States.

She discusses why the single payer legislation has more possibilities particularly in California with the collapse of Trump's and the Republican's effort to repeal ACA Obama Care. The Democrats now have a super majority in the legislature with a Democratic governor.

Next WorkWeek looks at the struggle between 17,000 workers at AT&T for a contract without concessions on healthcare, outsourcing and other conditions and benefits. WorkWeek interviews Rodney Gonzalez who is Systems Technician Special Services with AT&T and has 20 plus years with AT&T. He is also Executive Vice President CWA Local 9423 and local and political chair.

James Cruz is a Premises Technician with 9 years at AT&T and is the Local Mobilizer coordinator of CWA Local 9423. Martha Sanchez is a Retail Sales Consultant at AT&T Mobility with 7 ½ year and is a steward and lead mobilizer for Mobility at CWA 9423.
