CWAers Work to Elect Tom Suozzi to Congress

Yesterday, Representative Tom Suozzi (D-N.Y.) was sworn into Congress after a special election victory powered by CWA members across the country. Rep. Suozzi has been a champion for working families throughout his time in public office, serving as a co-chair of the House Labor Caucus during a prior term.

With consistent, weekly phone banks and a massive turnout at labor walks that boosted voter engagement, CWA members were front and center of the labor movement, which delivered the district for Suozzi. Over an intensive six-week campaign, CWAers made over 50,000 phone calls, knocked on 1,000 doors, and completed 300 volunteer shifts to deliver a decisive 8-point victory. CWAers made this campaign a nation-wide effort, with more than 120 CWA members across the country joining together for a national phone bank. Members even stepped up during an Election Day snowstorm to arrange rides to the polls for 80 voters.

Rep. Suozzi’s election shows the power of working people coming together to make CWAers’ voices heard in the halls of Congress.
