CWA International News

The Gawker media blog has it right: "Union membership is holding steady at not enough."

CWA members joined hundreds of other activists outside the state Capitol in Michigan to protest the lead-poisoned water.

Tufts University economists have confirmed what CWA and allies have been saying all along: The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would destroy U.S. jobs and cut workers' wages.

A months-long campaign by AFA-CWA has resulted in the introduction of federal legislation to fight human trafficking.

Activists warned members of Congress that voting to "Fast Track" the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would have consequences in election year 2016.

CWA President Chris Shelton talked with Fox Business host Neil Cavuto about the Sanders campaign.

CWA activists are staffing phone banks, walking their precincts and doing what it takes to support Senator Bernie Sanders in his bid for the Democratic nomination for President.

"As president, I will not sign this disastrous trade agreement if passed by Congress."

CWA President Chris Shelton issued this statement on the results of the Iowa Caucuses.

About 10,000 CWAers and allied partners joined CWA's telephone town hall call on Feb. 2, and listened as Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), former Labor Secretary Robert Reich and CWA President Chris Shelton talked about how activists can take on Wall Street and the "too big to fail" banks.

Verizon Picket Lines


There is a possibility that our CWA brothers and sisters at Verizon could possibly go on strike tonight. If you see them walking while they are on strike, DO NOT CROSS THEIR PICKET LINES!! You could see them picketing at malls, or at Verizon wireless stores and other work locations. 

This is extremely important for those who work at CoLocations and Cable Stations as you see them daily.
