CWA members across the country are mobilizing to protect call center jobs from offshoring, and thanks to the hard work of Nevada CWA members, call center legislation is now heading to Governor Steve Sisolak for a signature.
The bill strengthens reporting requirements for companies that move more than 30 percent of their call center work out of Nevada, institutes a $5,000 per day penalty, and puts them on a bad actors list. Any company on that list is banned from receiving certain state funding and grants.
AT&T's lobbyists fought hard against the Nevada bill, applying pressure on state legislators to try to weaken it, but the governor helped keep the bill from being watered down.
