Every Labor Day we’re treated to another round of media stories claiming that unions have no place in our global economy. Now that’s really fake news.
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.
The goal of CWA Strong is to create a shared understanding of the forces that seek to derail the gains we’ve made. We’ll use the smarts we’ve acquired in decades of organizing, bargaining and mobilization to reach every member, strengthen our union and protect good jobs, wages, benefits and retirement.
