Great news — after bargaining for a year and a half, CWA Local 1051 reached an agreement with the town of Westford. The new contract gives our members significant pay increases that align them with their peers, without giving up anything that was in the previous contract. Our members unanimously voted to approve it, and all the relevant parties have signed it. Thanks to everyone involved for making this happen!
