After months of delays and union-busting tactics from the company, TCGUnion-CWA members are officially bargaining for their first union contract!
TCGUnion-CWA is bargaining for fairness, dignity, job security and a seat at the table. Employees haven’t received a raise in 2 years, and many live paycheck to paycheck. “We love our jobs. We need them to be stable so our lives can be stable,”TCGUnion-CWA posted on Twitter.“We will continue to holdEbay and Littler to their obligation to bargain in good faith on the issues that matter most to us.”
As members of TCGUnion-CWA bargain for stronger workplace protections and better benefits, we should all stand in solidarity with their fight. All workers deserve a voice at work, and have a right to organize and bargain for improvements on the job.

The strike comes after the automakers scoffed at UAW’s demands for increased wages, benefits and job protections for members.
