CWA District 2-13 Against Racism

As trade unionists and as Americans, we were all outraged by the vicious murder of George Floyd. We are heartened by the uprising of hundreds of thousands of Americans, Black, Brown and white, demanding an end to racism and declaring: “Black Lives Matter.”

Because of Covid-19, it has been difficult for many of us to show our solidarity with this movement.

But on Thursday, June 11, at 12 noon in each time zone, CWA members and allies across the globe took a stand against racism by doing what trade unionists do when they are protesting for what’s right and fair: Stopping Work.
