Political Action Fund

Social share icons

  The CWA Political Action Fund (PAF) is the political action committee for the working men and women of CWA, their families, and retirees.  Every dollar you contribute to the Political Action Fund (PAF) is put to work building political power for you, your family, and your future.  The PAF provides financial contributions to worker-friendly candidates.  CWA can only use voluntary dollar’s  to contribute to an endorsed candidate for federal office.  No Union dues money of any kind can be given to a political candidate for federal office of a national political party. 

The Political Action Fund (PAF) is fighting to strengthen your voice at work and garner one who have none.  The PAF is working to give every patient in NY State the kind of health care we would want for our own families, such as fighting for the passage of the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act requiring safe staffing nurse to patient ratio’s.  Your PAF was instrumental in settling the forty nine (49) day Verizon strike, earning a fair and just contract for our sisters and brothers working there.  PAF contributions were used to prevent the Berger Commission from closing two area hospitals staffed by CWA member’s right here in our WNY Community.

Most importantly today the PAF is being utilized in our collective effort to insure the Affordable Health Care Act (AHCA) remains the law of the land.  Without it our job security is at severe risk, access to quality health care is at severe risk.  The option to repeal and replace Obama-care (AHCA) is not an option for CWA members and their families.

The CWA Political Action Fund makes politics work for working families.
