CWA COVID-19 Response Update – March 26, 2020

As the COVID-19 crisis spreads and deepens across the world, we know that you are concerned about your health and safety on the job and about the possibility of layoffs and furloughs. The challenges can seem overwhelming.

CWA leaders on every level – elected officers, stewards, health and safety activists, and others – are identifying issues as they arise and working with employers to ensure policies are in place to address those issues and that those policies are enforced.

If you have a problem that needs to be addressed, please reach out, especially if you are being asked to work in unsafe conditions. Stewards and local officers have the most up-to-date information for your worksite. If you are having trouble reaching them, you can submit your question using the form available on and we will route it to the proper person for response.

The COVID-19 information page on CWA's website has been updated to include new resources. You can find these at

During this time, it is more important than ever that we be able to contact you with information that is specific to your employer or local. Please visit to help us update our records.
