IUE-CWA Members Build Skills and Advocate on Capitol Hill

Members of IUE-CWA, participating in their mentoring program, visited Washington, D.C., last week to learn why we lobby Congress, what pending legislation will most impact working people, and to advocate for those issues with their elected officials. Through the mentoring program, members learn skills to help strengthen their locals and build the labor movement. These younger workers will carry the torch passed to them by their mentors and become leaders in our union.

IUE-CWA Local 86004 member Heather Murphy said, “Participating in the IUE-CWA mentorship program has significantly enhanced my leadership skills and expanded my knowledge of labor union history. The program has provided me with a deeper understanding of the origin and purpose of unions, as well as the intersection of politics with critical legal decision-making processes.”
