U.S. Senator Bob Casey’s Statement Supporting T-Mobile Workers’ Right to Organize

As mentioned earlier, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a great statement in support of our efforts to bring justice to workers at T-Mobile USA. The statement reads as follows:

“I commend the members of the Communications Workers of America for their efforts to defend the fundamental right to organize and bargain collectively. The ability of workers to organize and bargain for their rights and benefits is not just a labor issue, it is an issue of economic justice.

It is workers who have taken advantage of this right that have helped build the middle class. One of the most effective ways to ensure economic security for workers and their families is for those workers to be union members. I hope that you succeed in your struggle so that more will have the ability to organize and help drive our economy’s recovery.”

Senator Casey joins many other U.S. elected officials – the 26 Democratic Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, who sent a letter of concern to Deutsche Telekom CEO Obermann, the 7 Republican House Members who sent a different letter, Senator John Kerry, or New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli who expressed his support for the workers at T-Mobile USA. He will not be the last.
