On Wednesday, more than 50 CWA members from Locals 1084, 1038, 1079, and 1014 got together in Camden, New Jersey to share food and fellowship and to talk about solidarity and leadership. Local 1014 President Karl Walko and Local 1084 President George Jackson encouraged the crowd of young members to invest their time in building the next generation of the labor movement for the sake of all working families.
Derrick Kearney reported on solidarity work and on ideas and inspiration from the summer Next Gen Summit in Detroit. Everyone played a little Labor Bingo, learned a few things during a CWA Next Gen 101 session, and made a lot of new friends.
Thanks to everyone in the CWA Next Gen New Jersey Locals who made this event such a great success. We can’t wait to see more.
