While President Trump's executive order puts a stop to these separations for the time being, it also directs immigration officials to detain families indefinitely -- another inhumane practice.

This radical plan would weaken both agencies, leaving working people and children more vulnerable to corporate abuses at work and in the education system.

The latest bargaining information for Envoy Air and Piedmont Airlines, Nokia, and the City of Boston Credit Union.

Members of the Florida Times-Union voted to join with Newsguild-CWA.

Twelve CWAers from CenturyLink, members of CWA Locals 7101 and 7102, gathered in Des Moines, Iowa, in early June for a two-day combined stewards' training and CWA STRONG organizing training.

CWA President Chris Shelton traveled to Liverpool, England, this week to participate in UNI Global Union's Global Congress.

As CWAers fight for higher wages and to protect the right to join together to create better workplaces, Democrats in the U.S. Senate and House introduced strong new legislation to help achieve those goals.

Instead of using their massive windfall from the Republican corporate tax cut bill to create jobs and raise workers' wages, corporations have been funneling their profits back into their companies through buybacks.

CWA, NABET-CWA, and TNG-CWA today filed a petition with the FCC to deny the potential merger between Sinclair Broadcast Group and Tribune Media Company, saying that the merger does not serve the public interest.

Amid growing concern about corporate stock buybacks in the wake of the Republican tax bill, Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) led thirty-one members of Congress in sending a letter to American Airlines CEO Doug Parker calling on the company to invest in its workforce. Despite promises that tax windfalls would be used to raise wages and create jobs, American Airlines recently authorized $2 billion in stock buybacks over the next two years.

Bargaining Update #72

Dear Members,
Before reading this report we want y ou to know that the bargining team has your best interest in mind and are working hard to get us all a fair contract. Pleae call or see your shop stewards for an update on any mobilization activities or questions about negotiations. The company is sending you emails to agree to the BULLSHIT FINAL OFFER that they emailed out, because they are not showing you all of the details and they are not even available for you to see! Why? because in the details they are screwing you over and dont even have the decency or respect to let you see this. Keep up the mobilization efforts. 
In Unity,
Local 1150
