In a vote of 166 yes vs. 138 no, over 465 LifePath workers will now be represented by CWA Local 13500!! Congratulations to all of the new members at LifePath and to CWA Organizer, Pam Tronsor and Asst. to the V.P. Marge Krueger on their tireless work to bring this one home for Labor!! The Lehigh Valley Labor Council assisted in this drive, and the big prizes were letters from former LifePath employee Mike D’Amore, who also serves as Allentown City Councilman, Rep. Joe Brennan, and especially Auditor General Jack Wagner.
Once again, an example of having strong political allies in place to assist Organized Labor when it is needed. The real work begins now with negotiations for a first contract. We will in all probability be calling on elected officials to assist and put pressure on LifePath to negotiate in good faith. Now, on to a first contract!!
