CWA did the best political work in our history. We had record numbers of volunteers, more engagement, and more financial contributions than ever.
Unfortunately, the results on Election Day were not what we had worked towards.
The labor movement now is more important than ever for working families and our nation. We are the first, and in many cases, the only defense against attacks on working families and retirees, and insatiable corporate greed. We play a critical role in safeguarding the rights of minority groups and fighting to advance civil rights.
I have called a face-to-face Executive Board meeting for December where we will discuss our next steps and chart our course to take on the challenges ahead.
We will not stop fighting for progress for working families and we will not back down. We will stand together in solidarity against those who want to weaken our union and destroy the achievements of generations of workers.
Together, with courage and right on our side, we will stand up to any attack on CWA members, retirees and their families, and all working people.
