Berg Voted to Block Call Center Bill That Would Have Brought Jobs Back Stateside

The Communications Workers of America (CWA) started running radio ads today in Bismarck, Fargo and rural North Dakota targeting Senate Candidate Rep. Rick Berg for voting to block critical legislation that would have brought back off-shored call center jobs stateside. According to the CWA, Berg joined his House Republican colleagues and voted to block call center legislation this past summer from consideration for debate on the House floor.

According to the ad, “Big banks and corporations who have been bailed out by taxpayers are sending these jobs overseas, putting Americans out of work and all of us at risk for identity theft.”

The ad campaign is the latest effort by CWA to ensure that voters in North Dakota and nationwide know exactly what’s at stake and who’s failing to take action on the increased offshoring of jobs. The CWA campaign includes major grassroots actions, an online and social media push on behalf of call center legislation, phone calls to households in key districts, and a video testimonial of call center workers ( that spotlights why keeping good jobs in North Dakota and throughout the country is critical.
