CWA President Chris Shelton: It’s Time to Bust the Filibuster

13 May, 2021

At a Defend Democracy Town Hall hosted by Our Revolution, CWA President Chris Shelton called on CWA members and allies to hit the streets to "bust the filibuster."

"Every other time we have come together to update our labor laws to give workers more power and more of a voice, the filibuster has blocked us," President Shelton said. "For too long, it's stood in the way of economic and racial justice in our country. Not anymore. Our mighty coalition is a majority of Americans. What we are fighting for is popular. We will take to the streets if necessary to reclaim our democracy and end the stranglehold of Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans on meaningful progress for working families."
