At CWA, our number one priority is jobs – standing up for our members and creating good jobs for all. Americans want good quality jobs that provide for them and their family. We must take strong action to help restore job security and opportunity and to reaffirm the American dream.
At CWA, our number one priority is jobs – standing up for our members and creating good jobs for all. Americans want good quality jobs that provide for them and their family. The time is now for each of us to take strong action to help restore job security and opportunity and to reaffirm the American dream.
One of the biggest threats to American working families is the continued outsourcing of our good paying jobs. Shipping jobs overseas has become just another corporate business decision without regard for the impact on workers and communities across our country. CWA is fighting back, and holding legislators accountable in their promises to stand up for American families by fighting for fair trade agreements, creating incentives to companies for domestic production, and investing in the critical jobs important for our future – in the green economy and telecommunications infrastructure.
We must support companies that have good business practices, creating jobs here in the United States, and Members of Congress that support policies that encourage such business practices. CWA remains committed to fighting in Washington DC for policies that create more job opportunities for our members, protect the jobs that we have, and ensure those jobs are high quality. Middle class Americans deserve a chance to provide a stable future for them and their families.
Here are some of the legislative initiatives we are fighting for:
