CWA 1298: UCOMM's in New England!
UCOMM Media Group is excited to announce that the Communications Workers of America Local 1298 is now a client. Local 1298 consists of over 3,300 members and has bargained union contracts with Frontier Communications, AT&T and AT&T Mobility in Connecticut, Massachusetts & Rhode Island, as well as Computer Sciences Corporation, YP LLC, Unite HERE Alliance, and T-Mobile. UCOMM is eager to work with CWA 1298 to assist them in improving their already pre-existing communications structure with a modern and crisp mobile-friendly website, a professional monthly e-newsletter and union-wide text messages. “Local 1298 is our first client in New England, based in Hamden Connecticut. This large multistate local union has members in 3 states and when we were retained, we immediatly took a few days and traveled some of their jurisdiction building their image library. "We instantly knew that this local was a good fit because of how quickly they moved getting us everything we needed to begin the process of building effective and effeciant internal union communications," says Kris LaGrange. "The challenges that the CWA faces in New England are the same challenges that unions face in New York, where UCOMM works with other CWA locals. Local 1298 has a communications team in place and we've been working closely with them to develop a structure that works for their individual needs."
