Communications Workers of America (CWA) District One

“Ben Kallos, who worked his way through college at SUNY Albany maintaining technology infrastructure, will help make our city's telecommunications services including internet, cable TV and phone service more affordable, reliable, and accessible.  He is a strong progressive whose forward-thinking ideas include working with cable franchise holders to offer free and low cost Internet to low-income families across New York City,” said Pete Sikora, NYS Legislative and Political Director, CWA District One, which includes 35,000 union members living and working in New York City. 

CWA District 1 is responsible for supporting 175,000 workers and 327 CWA local unions in New York, New Jersey, New England, and eastern Canada.
