Why we chose CWA

Why CWA? 

We are proud to affiliate Boulder County Employees Union with the Communications Workers of America (CWA) for many reasons:: 

  • CWA’s strong national history and culture as a worker-led, democratic union.

  • CWA has a demonstrated record of support for our independent BoCo union efforts.

  • CWA is one of the largest public sector unions in Colorado and has a proven record in the fight for Colorado public sector workers’ rights.

How we chose to affiliate with CWA: 

  • Our Boulder County organizing committee debated and discussed the possibilities of organizing independently or affiliating with a national union.

  • We met with and communicated with AFSCME and CWA and we weighed the pros and cons of each organization.

  • Our organizing committee took an unanimous vote in June 2023.
