Red Celebrates Life of CWAer Gerry Horgan Killed on Picket Line in 1989

We wear red to celebrate the life of CWA Local 1103 Chief Steward
Gerry Horgan, who was run down over 20 years ago on a NYNEX picket
line in Valhalla, N.Y.

Horgan was the first, and until 2003, the only CWA member killed while
picketing. His death is the reason why CWA members still today wear
red in solidarity on Thursdays.
