Shelton: Working People Must Win Elections in 2020

At the CWA National Legislative-Political Retreat, CWA President Chris Shelton spoke to activists about how critical it is to take back the White House and the U.S. Senate with pro-union candidates in 2020 if we want the labor movement to survive. Shelton urged CWA members to concentrate their efforts on electing candidates who will focus on increasing the power of working people to join unions and bargain strong contracts in 2021.

At the conference, attendees also discussed why passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act and the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act are a foundation for CWA's legislative agenda, and how CWA members and retirees can participate in crucial election campaigns across the country in 2020.
