Today marks the 30th anniversary of Gerry Horgan's death. His sacrifice on the picket line is "why we wear red" on Thursdays at CWA.
We wear red on Thursdays. We wear red for our families, our children, our neighbors, and our coworkers.
We wear red to remember those who made sacrifices before us, to make the telephone company a good place to work.
We wear red for livable wages, To pay our mortgage and taxes. We wear red for health benefits for our kids.
We wear red for quality time for our family, to coach little league, help out the church, and go to PTA meetings.
We wear red to volunteer for our community, To feed the hungry, care for sick children and babies, And help a neighbor in need.
We wear red because we care, We care about our neighbors and our customers.
