Save Our Call Center Jobs!

DISTRICT 6

FROM:       Derrick Osobase, Administrative Director

SUBJECT:   Tell Congress to Save our Call Center Jobs!

In recent years, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and other companies have closed call centers in the United States and sent thousands of valuable service-sector jobs overseas. CWA is calling on Congress to pass legislation in the House and Senate to stop U.S. companies from offshoring customer service jobs. If passed, bills H.R. 1300 or S. 515 would make companies that offshore call center jobs ineligible for certain federal grants and tax-payer funded loans. These bills also would require U.S. callers to be told the geographic location of the call centers they’ve been connected to and offered the opportunity to be connected to U.S.-based call centers.

Please take a moment to sign and share the petition (link below), and share with your membership and LP Coordinators.
