CWA Triangle



CWA grows when we are actively involved in building our union. ORGANIZING is the key to increase the power of our union. With the continual decline of unionized workers it is now more important than ever to stand together for justice in the work place. Organizing existing and new member increases the strength of our members and makes it necessary for management and Legislators to hear our voices.

If you and your coworkers are interested in organizing together, CWA will help you build majority support during your campaign. But experience shows us that for workers to create a viable union that truly represents their wishes, it’s best they lead the campaign and organize themselves. CWA will provide you with support and guidance after you and your co-workers take the first steps to forming your union.

Who CWA Isn't

Not every employer uses exactly the same tricks to keep workers from using their democratic right to have a union.

But we want you to know ahead of time that there is a pattern - a script - that most employers follow.

When workers organize, most employers will:

  • Make empty threats and promises.
  • Tell lies about the union.
  • Start floating rumors to discourage you.
  • Refuse to have an open, honest debate so you can hear the truth.

When you start talking union, the first thing your employer probably will do is try to confuse you by making you forget that you are the union.
