Communications Workers of America Endorses Re-Election of President Biden and Vice President Harris

The Communications Workers of America have endorsed the re-election of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

In their endorsement resolution, CWA’s Executive Board said:

CWA is dedicated to growing our power in the workplace, building a labor movement stronger than ever before, and protecting and revitalizing our democracy. To realize this vision, we need partners in public office who will join with us to grow power for working people. Because of his unquestionable commitment to empowering working people, CWA wholeheartedly endorses Joe Biden for re-election as President of the United States.

The resolution noted that President Biden has been a true partner for CWA and the labor movement in the White House. It highlighted the Biden-Harris administration’s accomplishments, including an over $40 billion investment in job-creating broadband infrastructure projects, which included the first ever labor standards on any federal broadband funding; badly needed support at the height of the pandemic to prevent layoffs of public sector workers, Flight Attendants, and passenger service agents; strengthening Buy American laws; and investing in American-made computer chips and renewable energy.

In a video statement announcing CWA’s endorsement, CWA President Chris Shelton said, “Our union enthusiastically supports President Biden’s re-election. Here’s why: when it is time to make decisions that affect working people, he doesn’t ask CEOs how they feel, he doesn’t ask Wall Street investors what they think, he talks to workers. Joe Biden respects who we are, what we think, and is absolutely committed to doing everything he can to support the labor movement. And we're going to do everything we can to support him.”

CWA’s Legislative and Political Action Teams, made up of thousands of CWA activists around the country, will be fully engaged with CWA members, retirees, and working families across the country to discuss what’s at stake in the election and the importance of re-electing President Biden, Vice President Harris, and members of Congress who support our work to rebuild power for working people. We must ensure that we continue to build on the progress we have made and get the job done.
