A pair [of] union busting bills, SB 78 and SB 1014, threatened hundreds of thousands of public sector workers' union representation, including more than 3,000 CWAers. https://cwa-union.org/news/cwaers-beat-back-anti-union-attacks-on-florida-workers

A new report issued by the AFL-CIO, its 30th annual Death on the Job Report, reveals that every day, on average, 275 U.S. workers die from hazardous working conditions. And this was even before the devastating COVID-19 pandemic that has been responsible for far too many worker infections and deaths in our country. CWA Local 3808 member Eric Chapman, an AT&T worker in Nashville, spoke at an AFL-CIO press event about two CWA members from his local who recently died - deaths that the union believes could have been prevented. https://cwa-union.org/news/why-didnt-att-do-anything-prevent-these-workers-deaths

The very second you receive this message. You need to leave your work aside and dial at 240-203-6464 so that we can discuss about your case and take necessary action on this matter. If we don't hear from you, then we will be forced to take legal action against you kindly call us back at 240-203-6464. Now, I'm as gullible as the next guy, and I would make that call - if I had a burner phone handy or if I were willing to reveal what number Google Voice forwards my calls to. But, this is more a thought-experiment for the lawyers out there. If you want a laugh, dial away. Please report your impressions. Bill (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly)
