Richmond, Virginia – The Virginia State Council of the Communications Workers of America announced today that they have endorsed Terry McAuliffe for Governor.
“We reviewed the candidate’s records closely and the decision was clear,” said Steve Chambers, President of the CWA Virginia State Council and Executive Vice President of CWA Local 2201 in Richmond. “Terry McAuliffe is a proven leader who has focused on creating jobs and making life better for working families in Virginia. He will help strengthen and expand public-sector collective bargaining in our state, get us to a $15 minimum wage more quickly, and make sure Virginians are able to have paid time off when they are sick or need to care for family members.”
“While Glenn Youngkin has been getting rich from sending jobs overseas, Terry McAuliffe has been bringing jobs to Virginia,” said Ed Mooney, Vice President of CWA District 2-13. “We need Terry McAuliffe’s leadership to keep Virginia on track for a strong recovery from the pandemic so working families thrive.”
CWA members in Virginia work in a variety of industries across the state including telecommunications, airlines, public safety, manufacturing, health care, education and media.
