DONATE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
PLEASE HELP THOSE IN NEED!
3 Ways you can help now...
CANNED FOOD DRIVE
As in the past, we are again collecting non-perishable food to help those in need. We are partnering with the Sacramento Central Labor Council for the “Operation Christmas Basket” Holiday Canned Food Drive. Help support your fellow Union members and their families who are struggling during the holidays by donating your non-perishable canned food items in our red holiday collection barrel at the CWA Local 9421 Union Hall. Please donate!
Please feel free to drop off your donation at the Union Hall (2725 El Camino Ave, Sacramento 95821) anytime between now and December 13th. The Hall is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.
Also, the Pioneers are doing their annual stocking project, where they collect items to stuff into stockings which will be distributed to needy families in the Sacramento area. Their goal this year is to fill over 3,000 stockings! We have always supported the great work of the Pioneers. To that end, we urge all CWA members to participate. CLICK HERE to see the flyer of items they are looking for. Items can be dropped off at the Union Hall, and we will get them to the Pioneers. As well, you can give items directly to the Pioneers. Thank you for your help!
KRAZY SAC LADZ
The Krazy Sac Ladz Inc. (crazy sacramento ladies) is a non-profit charity organization that supports homeless youth. For the past several years, we have been helping this group solicit gifts for homeless youth.
Specifically, they are looking for: Board Games, MP3 players, IPods, Hooded sweatshirts, hats, gloves, scarves, perfume, colognes, gift cards of any kind, cash/checks (donation Receipt will be given).

December 5, 2013
We were contacted by Stuart and his wife to thank us and all CWA Local 9421 members for the outpouring of support. They also sent us a nice card and note, which are posted below. We're very happy that Stuart is doing much better and that his recovery is advancing nicely!
TPP - TAKE ACTION!
SEE BELOW FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION
FIGHTING NAFTA ON STEROIDS
Do you know what TPP is? And no, it’s not a new form of Toilet Paper! TPP stands for the Trans-Pacific Partnership "free" trade agreement. Commonly referred to as “NAFTA on Steroids,” the 12+ country TPP agreement is the largest ever attempted. As a result, the agreement would severely impact the livelihood of millions of working Americans by driving down or eliminating worker wages, benefits and collective bargaining rights; off-shoring call center and other service/manufacturing jobs; eliminating environmental standards; driving up prescription drug prices; and repealing critical consumer protections on Wall Street. Make no mistake: passage of the TPP agreement would be a critical blow to middle-class Americans and organized labor! The TPP agreement is simply another chapter in the “race to the bottom.”
HELP STOP THE TPP!
Unless we take action, the TPP agreement will include investment and service rules that will make it easier for American firms to invest overseas and eliminate American jobs. These rules will promote the off-shoring of jobs in call centers, computer programming, engineering, accounting, medical diagnostics, and more. THESE ARE OUR JOBS!!
