Block the Nominations of Puzder for Secretary of Labor and Mnuchin for Treasury Secretary

Hello Sisters and Brothers,

This week we are featuring Mnuchin and Puzder.  Mnuchin’s hearing is scheduled for this week.  Please make calls to block both of these Cabinet picks.

Puzder is EXTRA special to us!  Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of Labor is Andy Puzder, who has a RECORD of UNION BUSTING Tactics!! His company hired Union Busting firms to fire workers who engaged in Union Activities.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Mnuchin participated in all the worst practices on Wall Street, spending two decades at Goldman Sachs. “The Foreclosure King” helped bring on the ‘08 Financial Crisis.  Again just say NO!!    

Below there is a note from CWA's National Legislative Political Director, Shane Larson. Please take a minute to read it before you make your weekly call.

THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!!!

Shane’s message:

Because of the work that you're doing, the plans by Republican Senators to fast track these nominations through Committee hearings without even proper vetting is slowing down. In just the last two days, the hearing for Education Secretary, billionaire and public school hater Betsy DeVoss has been postponed at least one week.  The hearing for Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder, now appears unlikely to happen until February. The hearing for the Foreclosure King Steve Mnuchin to be Treasury Secretary hasn't even been scheduled.  Wilbur Ross's nomination hearing was set to start on the 12th, but now won't happen until the 18th!  Keep in mind that we recognize that once these nominations make it to the Senate floor it will be hard to stop them, but these delays in having those votes is a good win for us!

Again, thank you -

Shane

PLEASE CALL !!! PLEASE CALL!!! PLEASE CALL !!!

Oppose the Nomination of Wilbur Ross for Commerce Secretary

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

This week CWA is featuring Wilbur Ross, Donald Trump’s nominee for Commerce Secretary. Ross is noted for, FIRING WORKERS AND BUSTING UNIONS!!  Ross “squeezes every last nickel out of [companies] by firing workers and shipping business lines offshore, and manages to profit in the exchange, usually by navigating the companies through bankruptcy.” 

   [The Nation, 11/30/2016]

PLEASE, PLEASE!!  TAKE 60 seconds out of your busy day to make a call, for your future and ask Senator Corey Gardner and Senator Bennet to block Ross! 

OPPOSE the nomination of Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services

Happy New Year Sisters and Brothers,

I hope everyone had wonderful Holidays.

On to the New Year of 2017, which I believe will be challenging on many fronts.  CWA will be addressing a few of the President Elect 1% Elite cabinet picks in the month of January.  The first Cabinet pick we are featuring is Tom Price, Trump’s pick for Secretary of Health & Human Services.  For years big drug and Insurance companies have supported Price along with their combined mission to END Medicare and force seniors to purchase health Insurance on the Private Network, despite years of paying into Medicare.  The Big Drug and Insurance companies are hoping their investment into Price is about to pay off!

Now Sisters and Brothers it is up to us to try and stop this appointment.   Please contact Senator Cory Gardner at 888 701-5344 and ask him to OPPOSE the nomination of Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services.  Every call counts.  His office will tally the calls received and that is sometimes what determines on how he will vote.  We must keep the pressure up!  Remember a stroke of a Legislators pen can take away any contracts we receive!!

Important Upcoming Events:
