Legislative Agenda

Corporate Money In Politics -- The 2010 Citizens United opened the gates to unlimited corporate money in politics, making a bad situation, even worse. CWA, our Legislative Political Action Teams in every district and our progressive allies are fighting back against the flood of corporate dollars that is destroying our democratic process.

Support the Call Center Bill -- Over the last decade, the U.S. has lost around half a million call centers jobs to off-shoring. Often companies pocket millions in taxpayer dollars to establish local call centers before shipping those jobs abroad just a few years later. The U.S. Call Center Worker and Consumer Protection Act strikes back by cutting off-shorers off from federal grants and loans, giving you the right to know where your operator is based and giving you the right to transfer back to a US-based operator. Read more.

Collective Bargaining Rights -- CWA continues to stand up for workers in the United States and across the globe, and carries on the fight for the right of people everywhere to organize for fairer wages, benefits and working conditions. Read more.

Affordable High-Speed Internet for America -- Speed Matters is a project of CWA to support policies to bring affordable high speed Internet to all Americans.
