CWA Congressional Scorecard Rules
To earn a score of 100%, a member of Congress must always vote with the Communications Workers of America (CWA) position on the legislation listed in the CWA Scorecard Voter Guide. The Communications Workers of America Legislative-Political Department calculates a members’ score by dividing the number of supportive votes over the total number of votes taken by that member relating to pro-worker legislation.
Additionally, CWA tracks the co-sponsorship of crucial legislation and sign-on letters regarding issues that CWA deems a priority. These are also essential measures that Members of Congress should take to show their support for CWA working families.
