COMMUNICATIONS WORKERS OF AMERICA
WHAT WE CAN DO
•Help maintain our standard of living. During contract negotiations, provide input on issues and participate in mobilization activities to support our bargaining committee.
AS CWA LOCAL1039 MEMBERS
We belong to a local union located where we live and work.
The work of our local unions is determined by us, CWA Local 1039 members. Local union programs and services are led and coordinated by our local union officers who we elect.
As CWA members, we elect local union delegates to our union’s national convention. The delegates we elect form our union’s highest governing body. The CWA convention has the final authority over our union’s budget, policies, programs, and dues structure.
Our union’s top international officers — president and secretary-treasurer — are elected by delegates who we elect to represent us. They serve on CWA’s executive board along with fifteen regional/sector officers, and four at-large members who are local officers.
Our Local level officers are -- President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Administrative / Clerical Unit Vice President, Professional Unit Vice President, Supervisory Unit Vice President, and Higher Level Vice President.
We also have an active Retiree's Chapter the "Golden Boomers" who continue the fight for workers rights.
How We Use Our Dues
Our union dues pay for union activities, including:
•Lobbying for legislation and regulations at all levels of government to help working people.
•Communications efforts for members and the public on our work and priorities.
