The Communications Workers of America represents 700,000 workers in private and public sector employment in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. CWA members work in telecommunications and information technology, the airline industry, news media, broadcast and cable television, education, health care and public service, law enforcement, manufacturing and other fields.
WashTech/CWA was formed in 1998 by Microsoft contract employees in Redmond, Washington and quickly affiliated with the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA).
By working with the CWA and taking the lead on issues that affect our fellow high-tech workers, our voices are being heard-in the press, in the boardrooms, and in Congress. High-tech workers from Silicon Valley to Boston are joining together to work to keep the jobs for which many of us were educated and trained. Now it is time for you to join our movement.
