CWA STRONG

CWA STRONG is a challenge to all of us, to create a shared understanding of the forces that seek to derail the gains we’ve made. We’ll use the smarts we’ve acquired in decades of organizing, bargaining and mobilization to reach every member, strengthen our union and protect good jobs, wages, benefits and retirement.

The CWA STRONG Pledge

I pledge to be an active member of my union.  I will make my local stronger by encouraging non-members to join and doing whatever it takes to protect our jobs, wages, benefits and retirement.  I am CWA STRONG.
