CWA Urges Congress to Protect the Open Internet

Friday, February 23, 2018

Members of the Communications Workers of America will be participating in a day of action on February 27 to urge Congress to use the Congressional Review Act to pass a "resolution of disapproval" as a first step toward legislation that would protect an open internet.

We need clear, enforceable rules to protect a free and open internet for everyone while promoting job-creating investment in broadband networks. The FCC should have the authority to enforce any violations. Instead of clear, common sense rules of no blocking, no throttling, and no favorable treatment to some websites, we now have a “trust me” approach that is ineffective and meaningless.

CWA will be promoting the day of action through its Speed Matters website, via email to its membership and on social media.
