NCUA Chairman Rodney Hood wrote FCC Chairman Ajit Pai this week in support of CUNA’s petition to offer clarity for the treatment of COVID-19 related calls under the TCPA. CUNA has called on the FCC to issue some form of guidance or provide clarity on this issue.
CUNA and other organizations filed reply comments to their petition to the FCC calling for TCPA relief for calls made from financial institutions to consumers related to the pandemic. CUNA and the organizations filed the original petition March 30.
The FCC should immediately grant the petition CUNA and others submitted last month calling for some form of ruling that calls and texts from financial institutions to consumers related to the COVID-19 pandemic fall under the TCPA Emergency Purposes Exception.
CUNA and other organizations Monday requested the Federal Communications Commission issue some form of ruling, clarification or waiver that calls from financial institutions to consumers related to COVID-19 should fall under the TCPA's Emergency Purposes Exception.
The Federal Communications Commission should require entities that block or label calls to provide real-time notification and adopt effective, transparent and timely redress mechanisms, CUNA wrote to the FCC Friday.
Nearly three years have passed since CUNA submitted its petition for TCPA clarity with no action, CUNA and all 35 state Credit Union Leagues wrote the FCC Wednesday. Since then TCPA judicial interpretations have become increasingly more contradictory.
The FCC should clarify expeditiously the definition of an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS), CUNA and several other trade organizations wrote to the agency as CUNA continues its push for Telephone Consumer Protection Act clarity.
CUNA filed an amcicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court this week saying the TPCA as currently implemented harms credit unions member by hindering the flow of important information and forces them to bear the costs of TCPA lawsuits.
FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly said Thursday the FCC has an obligation to resolve many of the worthy TCPA petitions that are currently pending and cited CUNA’s petition, as a "common-sense request" the agency should address.
CUNA is concerned about proposed action from the FCC that would block robocalls by default, believing it could result in serious disruptions to credit union-member communications. The commission will vote June 6 on a declaratory ruling.
