What You Can Do To Ensure Broadband Funding Supports Jobs for CWA Members Instead of Low-Road Contracting Companies

Too often, funding for broadband buildout ends up in the pockets of low-road contracting companies. Next Thursday, June 9th, at 8 pm ET, join President Shelton and members of CWA’s Broadband Brigade for a virtual meeting to find out how you can get involved and ensure that the federal broadband buildout funds from the bipartisan infrastructure bill are used to support good jobs for CWA members.

Thanks to the hard work of our members, federal guidelines require states to consult with unions as they develop plans to award these funds to providers. This is a major win but it’s only the first step. In order to ensure that states meet the requirements as outlined by the Biden Administration, CWAers must continue to actively engage at the state level with governors and state legislatures. Register for the virtual meeting at cwa.org/broadbandmeeting to learn more about how you can get involved.
