Join The Union

We deserve to be respected and treated well where we work. Every employer, from the smallest company to the largest corporation, and in state, local and county government, should treat us with dignity and respect, providing good pay, benefits and working conditions.

Unfortunately, many employers are so concerned with profits and the bottom line that they overlook our welfare, satisfaction, or input. That’s why thousands of working men and women like us are choosing to organize with CWA every year. When you successfully organize and get CWA representation, you get a real voice in your workplace and future:

  • You get the legal right to bargain with your employer over pay, benefits, health care, employment security, retirement, and other conditions of employment.
  • You get to negotiate over policies affecting promotions, job bidding, layoffs, and many other aspects of your job and workplace.

In CWA, you will be part of one of America’s largest and most diverse unions. We work not just in the communications and information industries, but also in the news media, the airlines, broadcast and cable television, public service, higher education and health care, manufacturing, and public safety and law enforcement and more.

Who is CWA?

CWA has helped over 132,000 workers achieve representation over the last ten years.
