Gerry Horgan: A Voice In The Union

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Message from President Tony Spina

August 15th is the 25th Anniversary of the death of Gerry Horgan. The Powerful video below explains why we wear red on Thursday - for unity and to memorialize our fallen brother Gerry Horgan. The video is 15 minutes and a tear-jerker - a must see for all in the CWA. It's empowering and I strongly suggest you all take a few minutes to watch the video.

Gerry died on Aug 15, 1989 from injuries sustained after being struck by a car, driven by a scab, while walking the picket line. On strike against the NYNEX Corporation fighting for medical benefits Gerry was the only CWA Member ever killed on a picket line. He was 34 years old and he left behind a wife and 2 young children.
