CWAers in Ohio, members of Locals 4302, 4320, and 4322, who gathered in Columbus in late April for a two-day CWA political boot camp training, have just completed a six-week follow-up political education and leadership development program designed to train activists on how to build working-class power.
Participants worked on skills including member-to-member organizing in the workplace and communities, volunteer recruitment, creating organizing plans, and much more. Attendees also learned about the CWA Political Action Fund (PAF) and CWA's national legislative efforts to fight back against anti-worker legislation and advance bills at the state and federal level that protect call center jobs. The program gave members a chance to collaborate by sharing tips and best practices from their locals with each other.
The training was paid for by CWA's Ohio Growth Fund.
