CWA Canada Looks to Build on Organizing Success

Local leaders from across Canada gathered in Windsor for the CWA Canada National Representative Council last week to develop strategies for building on recent organizing success in newsrooms across North America and make our union stronger.

At the meeting, CWA President Chris Shelton talked about the Trump administration's assault on labor unions and workers' rights in the U.S. and warned CWA members in Canada to fight back before it's too late. "We can't let the politicians and corporations keep turning up the heat on our trade union movement," said Shelton. "We must fight now, while in Canada we still represent 15% of the private sector workforce. We must expand our presence and not let our gains be rolled back."

Also in attendance at the conference were CWA Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens, CWA Canada President Martin O'Hanlon, TNG-CWA President Bernie Lunzer, and TNG-CWA Secretary-Treasurer Marian Needham.
