CWAers in Florida Ramp Up Their Election Mobilization
CWA political activists in Florida have been ramping up their efforts to mobilize and build support for pro-worker candidates in the upcoming midterm elections. They have been engaging in door-to-door member canvassing in South and Central Florida for the general election. Earlier this week, teams of members went out to knock on member household doors in Miami and Orlando to build support for Charlie Crist, who is running for Governor; Val Demings, who is running for U.S. Senate; and other CWA-endorsed candidates. Members in Miami are also participating in a new Political Activist Training class.
CWA Local 3108 activists are building support for pro-worker candidates in Florida.

Join CWA’s National Day of Action to Re-Elect Keith Ellison
Join CWAers for a National Day of Action on Thursday, October 13, at 6pm ET, to phone bank for Minnesota Attorney General and long-time labor champion Keith Ellison.
Keith Ellison has a long history of supporting unions and workers during his career in Congress and his current role as Minnesota Attorney General. During his time in Congress, he fought against unfair trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a deal that would have opened the door to more outsourcing of good, union jobs. He has brought his commitment to workers to his role as Attorney General. He played a crucial role in helping protect CWA Jobs at Frontier Communications. In addition, he created the first ever unit at the Attorney General’s office to pursue wage theft against workers. He has also taken on the big corporations that have engaged in price gouging and he has not shied away from standing up to big tech companies like Facebook and Google, who prioritize profits over workers. Time and time again, he has walked the picket line with union members.
Join your fellow CWAers on the National Day of Action to phone bank together and re-elect one of our labor champions. Sign up here.
