Dear Members,

CWA Local 1038 recently received the Global Solidarity Award along with the 2013 COPE Achievement Award. We had the largest increase of member sign ups to our Political Action Fund in New Jersey and in 1038 history. Our Local's continuous fight for working families is something we all should be proud of. We will continue those fights this upcoming year. I look foward to seeing all of you at our Union Picnic in Wildwood. Thank you for everyone's hard work and dedication to making our local as successful as it has become.

In solidarity,
Shawn Ludwig
