CWA Call to Action for Worker Power!

Enacting the Build Back Better Act is key to creating jobs, cutting taxes, lowering costs for working families, and making it easier for workers to join unions. This legislation is critical in ensuring every worker gets paid fairly, has safe working conditions, and is able to organize to form a union without fear of retaliation. Take action to urge Congress to pass this bill by signing the petition and RSVP to the Build Back Better Act phone bank, Thursday, October 28th, 3-5pm PT / 6-8pm ET.

Passing the Freedom to Vote Act, a revised version of the For the People Act, is an opportunity to repair our political system and strengthen our democracy. The bill will protect our freedom to vote, end partisan gerrymandering, reduce the influence of big money in politics, strengthen our election infrastructure, and stop partisan election subversion. Tell Congress to fix our democracy by sending an email to your member of Congress.
