CWA Vice President Responds to Tragedy in Ferguson, MO

CWA members live and work in every part of Missouri, including Ferguson. Our members will be there in the long struggle for social and economic justice and democracy.

CWA members live and work in every part of Missouri, including Ferguson. They deserve, and our union will support them in securing:

  • A full and transparent investigation into the circumstances of Mike Brown’s death and full accountability for anyone involved in any wrong doing.
  • Protection for their rights to go to and from their homes and places of work, for their right to assemble, and for their right to document and report on the events in Ferguson.
  • Investment in the community of Ferguson and all struggling communities in Missouri that remove the long standing barriers to employment and full participation in community life standing in the paths of too many of our youth.

Our union is part of the Ferguson and St. Louis community. Our members will be there in the long struggle for social and economic justice and democracy. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family of Mike Brown and for peace in Ferguson.

A message from Claude Cummings, CWA Vice President District 6 and Executive Board Diversity Committee Chair.
