CWA President Cummings Joins Phonebank to Turn Out the Vote for Tom Suozzi

CWA President Claude Cummings Jr. joined former U.S. Representative Tom Suozzi (D-N.Y.) and a large crowd of CWA members and retirees for a virtual phonebank earlier this week. Suozzi is running in a special election to fill the seat recently vacated by expelled Representative George Santos (R-N.Y.). CWA activists made over 1,500 calls to CWA members in Suozzi’s district and identified over 300 voters ready to cast a ballot for Suozzi. Volunteers discussed Suozzi’s 96% pro-union voting record and his history of bipartisan collaboration and accomplishments.

This special election is of critical importance as New York will be a battleground state in the fight to elect a pro-worker Congress this year. If elected, Suozzi will continue to defend workers against the ongoing anti-labor assaults from the Republican majority. Suozzi’s district has one of the highest densities of union membership in the country.
