Encyclopedia > Communications Workers of America

Communications Workers of America (CWA) is the largest communications and media labor union in the United States (the union also has locals in Canada), representing over 700,000 workers in both the private and public sectors. CWA is headquarted in Washington, DC and affiliated with the AFL-CIO, the Canadian Labour Congress, and Union Network International. The current president is Morton Bahr, a member of the AFL-CIO Executive Council.


CWA's roots lie in the organizing of telephone workers into the National Federation of Telephone Workers, founded in 1938. After losing a strike with AT&T in 1947, the federation reorganized as CWA, a truly national union, which affiliated with the Congress of Industrial Organizations in 1949. Since 1997, it includes The Newspaper Guild. In 2004, the Association of Flight Attendants merged with CWA, and became formally known as the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, or AFA-CWA.
