'We'll Fight for the Grassroots Revolution Our Country Needs'

CWA President Chris Shelton issued this statement on the results of the Super Tuesday primaries:

Members of the Communications Workers of America voted decisively to endorse Bernie Sanders for President, knowing that we were in it for the long haul. Like Senator Sanders, we are determined to take on today's one-sided economy, where political contributions wipe out the voice of ordinary Americans and where Wall Street calls all the shots – about our jobs, our communities and our livelihoods.

That's what the Sanders campaign is all about. We're not going anywhere. We continue to support Senator Sanders' campaign that calls out an economic and political establishment that's rigged against working families.

Bernie Sanders is the only candidate whose campaign is funded by the small dollar contributions of ordinary Americans. That matters. He has energized millions of voters with his message of fundamental change that benefits working families, not the 1 percent, and the fight isn't over.

In the coming primary states, and especially in California, New York, New Jersey, and Ohio – where CWA has its largest numbers of members – activists will continue to canvass neighborhoods, organize worksite actions, staff phone banks, and rally around Senator Sanders and the grassroots revolution our country needs.
