CWA Protests Unfair Labor Practices at

TRUMP HOTEL in Washington, D.C.

Chris Shelton Speaks to Picketers

CWA President Chris Shelton and CWAers joined members from the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees, the AFL-CIO, and many other labor groups to picket outside the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. Pickets have also been organized at Trump hotels in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Honolulu.

Trump has refused to recognize the right of his employees at the Trump Hotel Las Vegas to organize and bargain, despite their voting for Union Representation last year,  and the Union being recognized by the National Labor Relations Board.

The CWA National Civil Rights and Equity Committee and the CWA National Women’s Committee hosted their biennial conference on human rights this week in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference featured workshops, guest speakers, and political action.

CWA District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings, leads the CWA  Diversity Committee, addressed the group saying, “These are challenging times and we in labor who are accustomed to speaking out, working together, and bringing about change have a special role to play. We must take back what we learned here to our workplaces and communities.”

“We need to stand with each other and inspire each other, because we are living in perilous times,” said CWA President Chris Shelton. “The one percent wants to crush us. All of us; men, women, black, white, brown, heterosexual, LGBTQ. Who we are doesn’t really matter to them. Their greed is so great, they want it all. The one percent wants to buy our democracy and roll back 50 years of voting rights to suppress the vote and win elections. We won’t let them. The one percent thinks it has all the power, but we are the 99 percent and when we mobilize and join together, nothing can stop us. That is the basis of our unity.”

On Monday, CWA members rallied with the Georgia Federation of Teachers to oppose ballot initiative SR.287 and fight for high-quality, locally controlled neighborhood public schools. The event was aimed at educating Georgia voters about the misworded and often misunderstood ballot initiative that if passed would strip local control of Georgia’s public schools.
