CWA LEADERS TO CONVERGE ON MIAMI BEACH FOR ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION

 CWA LEADERS TO CONVERGE ON MIAMI BEACH
 FOR ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION
 The Communications Workers of America will hold its 54th Annual Convention April 6-8 in Miami Beach, Fla., at the Miami Beach Convention Center, beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, April 6. More than 3,000 delegates and alternates from all regions of the United States and Canada will attend the convention -- the union's highest policy- making body.
 Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton is expected to address the convention, as well as other prominent officials and labor leaders.
 The convention will also focus on the election of CWA's national officers. And among other concerns of the delegates is the 1992 round of bargaining which began with AT&T in March and involves more than 400,000 CWA members throughout the telecommunications industry and in the public sector.
 "The challenges we face this year present many opportunities for change," commented CWA president Morton Bahr. "Our bargaining goals of economic security for our families, justice in the workplace, and preservation of union jobs, set an agenda to demand that successful corporations set an example in providing -- not destroying -- good American jobs.
 "And we have the opportunity to help change the direction of our government, by mobilizing CWA members and their families, along with other working people, to put a progressive president in the White House this year," Bahr concluded.
 The CWA news room will open for media registration on Monday, April 6, at 8:30 a.m., at the Miami Beach Convention Center. For more information call CWA starting on Friday, April 3 in Miami, at 305-532-7842 or 305-534-0945.
 CWA represents over 600,000 workers in telecommunications, printing, publishing, media, health care, and the public sector in the United States and Canada.
