CWA Returns Favor to Lawmakers Supporting Call Center Bill

The Communications Workers of America earlier this week called the constituents of 21 House members to praise the lawmakers for supporting a bill that the union says would bolster the domestic call center industry.

Now, CWA is planning to launch an online ad campaign raising awareness about the call center legislation and thanking the bipartisan group of members for their efforts. It is also organizing an email campaign to complement this week's phone calls and will sponsor rallies in some of the members' districts.

The bill, the U.S. Call Center Worker and Consumer Protection Act, would prevent corporations that move call center jobs abroad from obtaining federal grants and guaranteed loans. It has over 100 cosponsors, but CWA focused its phone call campaign on the bill's early supporters and on lawmakers running in what the union views as key races in 2012.
