The Machinists have launched a new iPad/iPhone/Android application, ostensibly designed to bring the IAM Journal to its readership, but more likely to be used as a tool for coordinating organizing campaigns, boycotts, strikes, and corporate campaigns. The app is currently available for the iPad, and their website shows that the phone versions are “coming soon.”

The Communication Workers are still battling it out with Verizon, recently launching a new “iWon’t Upgrade” campaign attempting to foment public support for the CWA’s fight with the communications company. The corporate campaign is “asking Americans to delay upgrading to the new iPhone on Verizon Wireless until the company agrees to a fair contract with its workers.” The site is designed to coordinate leafleting campaigns at local Verizon outlets.
