CWAers Build Power at the NAACP National Convention

CWA members from across the country, including workers organizing at federal contractor Maximus, represented our union at the 114th NAACP National Convention last month in Boston, Mass. CWA President Claude Cummings Jr., who is a member of the NAACP National Board of Directors, also participated in the convention and highlighted CWA’s leading role supporting Black workers organizing in the South.

The CWAers took part in several workshops and plenary sessions including a labor luncheon and symposium. They also had the opportunity to hear and learn from social justice leaders and experts in various fields, as well as forge relationships with NAACP members from their communities.
