Passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act and other bills to update our outdated, broken labor laws is a top priority for working people across the country, and CWA members have been leading the fight.
Several extremely wealthy CEOs and investors have made it their mission to make sure nothing stands in their way as they cut jobs, drive down wages, reduce benefits, and gut health and safety regulations. CWA leaders anticipated these challenges.
CWA members will continue to stand up and fight, despite anti-union corporate and political groups who are intent on restricting the freedom of working people to stand together for respect and fairness in the workplace.
Since our last convention, we rallied, mobilized, organized and picketed. Our bargaining teams negotiated contracts covering tens of thousands of CWA members across our industries and sectors. Thousands of workers in the airline industry, telecom and wireless, and customer service organized and more gained a CWA voice. We engaged in civil disobedience, marched for democracy and civil rights and demanded pension fairness. We’re proud of our solidarity and our union.
