Why The CWA Endorsed Bernie

No comments
In December of last year, CWA members across the country voted to endorse Bernie Sanders for President. We made this decision for the same reason we fight for our union. Bernie’s campaign is about everyday working people uniting to fight for a better life. It stands against big corporations squeezing all they can out of us to increase their profits. With the pledged delegate count at 405 for Bernie Sanders and 595 for Hilary Clinton (3/10/2016), and with the majority of states still to vote this is still a very close race. We need a union and a voice on the job at Verizon Wireless. We need a voice in the white house to stand up against big corporations throughout the country.  
Bernie Sanders addressed hundreds of CWA members at Verizon and Verizon Wireless outside the company's HQ and Times Square retail store.

LIVING WAGE – At Verizon Wireless we are demanding a raise. Bernie Sanders is demanding a raise for the whole country by supporting a $15 minimum wage. PAID SICK TIME – At Verizon Wireless we are fighting for more paid sick time. Bernie Sanders supports making 7 days paid sick time a federal law. RIGHT TO A UNION – At Verizon Wireless we are fighting for a UNION! Bernie Sanders supports the Employee Free Choice Act which would make it easier for all workers in the US to form a union.
