FOR REAL TIME
LIKE CWA LOCAL 2108 ON
Wear RED on THRUSDAYS???
History of Wearing RED:
The idea of wearing
as a sign of Solidarity began at
the Communications Workers of America in 1989.
It began as a movement out of love for a
brother who lost his life to a SCAB.
Tricia McNamara had to get to work and drove
the line of picketers.
In her desperation, this
summer-hire SCAB struck down Brother
Gerry Horgan. He gave his
life for what he believed in, for what he
loved, for what he lived for. He wanted what we
want, a good life for his wife, his children,
and his friends. Local 1103 in Westchester
County N.Y. lost a Brother that day. A wife
lost her husband and two little girls lost
daddy to Corporate GREED. This greed still
exists today. The members of that Local wore
RED for the
first time in Unity for Brother Gerry
That display of Unity is
what CWA members are supposed to be all about.
Is it too much to
ask that we wear RED on Thursdays,
to say with a color or your voice "I'm Proud To
Union Member, I'm Proud To Be With CWA!"?
Remember, wear RED on Thursday,
please remember Brother Gerry Horgan!
We wear RED
on Thursdays, and we encourage all
working people to wear RED on
Thursdays, too, because every working person
deserves a good paying job with benefits.
