Health & Safety

NABET-CWA is a part of the Communications Workers of America, the largest communications and media union, representing over 700,000 men and women in both private and public sectors. Workplace safety is extremely important to the Union and its members.

Buy Union-Made Cars & Trucks

If you're thinking about buying a new car, truck or van soon, be sure to consult the UAW's Drive Union Buying Guide. The guide lists all vehicles made by members of the UAW and the Canadian Auto Workers, as well as IUE-CWA. The list includes the familiar brands such as Buick, Chevrolet, Ford, Mercury, Dodge and Jeep, as well as union-made models from Mazda, Mitsubishi, Toyota and Volkswagen.

Car shoppers should remember that not all vehicles made in the United States or Canada are built by union-represented workers. For example, most models of the GMC Sierra are produced in the United States but some are made in Mexico.

America is supposed to be the land of opportunity, a country where hard work and playing by the rules would provide working families a middle-class standard of living. But in recent decades, corporate CEOs have been taking a greater share of the economic pie while workers’ wages have stagnated.

CEO pay continues to outpace the pay of working people. In the past 10 years, CEO pay at S&P 500 companies increased more than $340,000 a year to an average of $14.8 million in 2019.

Meanwhile, the average production and nonsupervisory worker saw a wage increase of $836 a year, earning on average just $41,442 in 2019.

The average S&P 500 company CEO-to-worker pay ratio was 264-to-1.

It doesn't have to be this way. Lawmakers should raise the minimum wage and protect U.S. workers by not engaging in bad trade deals. Corporations should pay their employees a living wage – and workers should have a collective voice on the job to demand their fair share.
