CWA Members Defeat Attempt to Prevent Working People from Improving Working Conditions on Tribal Lands

Thanks to thousands of emails and phone calls from CWA members, the U.S. Senate failed to pass a bill that would have removed protections for working people on Native American lands.

If the bill had passed, roughly 800,000 workers would have lost all federal protections for their right to join together as union members to fight for better wages and working conditions. Casinos and other big business interests opposed to worker power worked with Republican leaders in Congress to make this bill a major priority.
