For Members

Welcome to CWA

Welcome to the Communications Workers of America (CWA).

You have joined hundreds of thousands of working people who organized together for bargaining power and justice for all working families. We seek to strengthen our communities through good hometown jobs.

As a CWA member, you will enjoy workplace benefits and protections that have been won over the years by working people like you who organized and bargained collectively to gain a voice on the job.

As you get involved, you will find that we — CWA’s members — are CWA. Our union is not just something we belong to — it is an organization that we, as CWA members, actively participate in and direct through a democratic process.

The following pages explain how CWA works and how you can help keep it strong and get involved.
