Supporting Pro-Worker Candidates in Virginia

Last Wednesday, CWAers in Virginia participated in a day of action to call union members across the state and talk about what's at stake in the upcoming statewide election. This day of action was focused on communicating the importance of winning this election for public workers in Virginia who currently do not have collective bargaining rights. CWA has endorsed gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe and General Assembly candidates who have pledged that if elected, they'll work with labor to secure that right for Virginia's public servants. Public, Health Care and Education Workers Vice President Margaret Cook and CWA District 4 Vice President Linda L. Hinton participated in the day of action along with 35 CWAers and other union members who made over 1,200 calls.
