CWA leaders from across the country joined President Chris Shelton and CWA’s Broadband Brigade members for a virtual meeting earlier this month to learn more about how to get involved in CWA’s ongoing campaign to ensure that the federal broadband buildout funds from the bipartisan infrastructure bill are used to support good jobs for CWA members.

President Shelton thanked the CWA leaders for joining a critical conversation and stressed the need for everyone to get involved to help make sure as much of the work to expand access to high speed, affordable internet service for all communities is done by CWA members.

“I’ve never been prouder of the work of this union than what I’ve seen this kick-ass group of members do. I urge you to work closely with them as we move forward with making sure that we take full advantage of this opportunity presented to us to secure good, union jobs and make a real difference for our country by bringing true high speed broadband to every community,” added Shelton, uplifting CWA’s Broadband Brigade members for their continued advocacy and hard work.
