Brothers and Sisters,
Yesterday the CWA Executive Board voted to endorse Joe Biden for President
We need to keep our union strong by organizing around workplace issues, staying informed, and asking our non-member co-workers to join us in this fight.

Take Action

Support the PRO ACT

  • Protect strikes and other protest activities. The bill will make it illegal for employers to permanently replace striking workers and make secondary strikes and boycotts legal.
  • Make it easier to bargain. The bill will eliminate obstacles for workers to get their first union contract. 
  • Help strengthen protections for workers forming a union. The bill will establish compensatory damages for workers and penalties against employers when they fire or retaliate against workers for forming a union.
  • Prevent the misclassification of workers as independent contractors.
  • Deal a blow to “right-to-work” laws.
  • And much more!
