Brothers and Sisters,
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a United States federal law that regulates telemarketing spam. It requires businesses to get expressed written consent from consumers using mobile devices before sending them text messages.
This week, Working Systems Cooperative, developer of the LaborPower software suite used by Local 1, notified all bulk texting clients that their texting provider will be implementing requirements for express recipient opt-in on all text messages. Starting on January 31st, 2024, only recipients who have opted in will receive text messages through WSC’s bulk texting service.
Members can log in at notify.Workingsystems.com using their cell phone number to opt-in or opt-out of receiving text messages. Instructions for opting in and opting out on this website are provided here: How to use the LaborPower Opt-In website.
