First Look: Union Ads Target GOP Candidates on Off-Shoring

The Communications Workers of America are up today with ads targeting two Republican House candidates for not supporting union-backed legislation to penalize companies that off-shore call center jobs.

Republican Rep. Dan Lungren of California and Vernon Parker, an Arizona House candidate, are getting hit in the ads for supporting tax breaks for companies that offshore while a spot for Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop of New York highlights his efforts to keep call center jobs in the U.S.

The campaign will run for 14 days on the major cable channels in each district. A CWA spokeswoman would not disclose how much the union spent on the buys.
