he Communications Workers of America (CWA) bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement with AT&T on a new four-year contract for Southwest Mobility workers.

AT&T Southwest Mobility workers, represented by the Communications Workers of America, today authorized a strike, with a vote supported by 98% of workers.

The Communications Workers of America (CWA) this week sent a letter to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chair Cheri Bustos to urge the Committee to cease providing campaign support to the seven Democratic House Members who voted against final passage of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act.
Thanks to the tireless work of CWA members and a broad coalition of labor, civil rights, environmental, religious, immigrant rights, and women's groups, the U.S. House passed historic legislation to make it easier for workers to join a union.
