The UCOMM Media Group is happy to announce that today we just launched a new mobile-friendly website for the Communications Workers of America Local 1298 based in Hamden, Connecticut. Found at, this site brings together 3,300 union members in New England who work for Frontier Communications, AT&T, AT&T Mobility – Connecticut, Massachusetts & Rhode Island, Computer Sciences Corporation, DEX LLC, Unite HERE Alliance, and T-Mobile.

In addition to using this state-of-the-art website to communicate their very busy members on the go, Local 1298 sends out a frequent union-wide newsletter they call the INSiDE WiRE. “You can also look forward to department specific communications,” says Local 1298’S Secretary-Treasurer Louise Gibson.

Each department will have their own page and will share departmental info there. The new platform allows us to communicate updates as they happen and get the information directly to your personal email box within minutes.

Members of Local 1298 can easily create an app-like mobile friendly shortcut on their phones and devices. “This website has a search feature, as we backlogged information and stories dating back to 2013,” says Ryan Birch, the UCOMM’s graphic artist and web developer. This website has a very powerful organizing page as well. 

Congratulations to the staff and leadership of Local 1298 for launching their website on-time and within budget. The site looks great and as you can easily see, they are one good looking local union!
