CWA International News

Nearly 40,000 Verizon workers who have been on strike since April 13 are celebrating big gains after coming to an agreement in principle with the company.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez announced that CWA, IBEW and Verizon have reached an agreement in principle on a four-year contract, resolving the open issues in the ongoing labor dispute.

CWA, as part of a coalition of more than 20 labor unions and activist groups, has launched a national campaign to fight back against Wall Street's overwhelming power in our nation's economy and politics. Take On Wall Street will push for a tough, concrete agenda to make the economy fairer for working families.

Bargaining updates from AT&T West, OFS, PBS and Verizon.

DirecTV workers from Ohio, Illinois, Mississippi and Missouri join CWA.

The Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild, TNG-CWA Local 32035, released a disturbing report this week revealing a big pay disparity at the Washington Post between men and women with the same jobs, and between white employees and employees of color.

Angela Melvin, a T-Mobile US call center worker from Wichita, Kan., and a leader in the new TU-CWA Local 6547, urged Deutsche Telekom shareholders to crack down on its American subsidiary's flagrant disrespect for U.S. labor law.

CWA and allies today launched our campaign to 'Take on Wall Street' and the current economic system that rewards the billionaire class over working families. 

According to a new report, the average CEO of an S&P 500 company made $12.5 million per year in 2015 – 335 times more than an average worker.

Bargaining updates for Verizon, AT&T West, United Airlines and the Hawaii Tribune-Herald.

First and foremost do not cross any picket lines. If you need to gain access to a building they are picketing there is to be another means of entrance made available to you.
