Our Values 


CWA is where working men and women join together to strengthen our voice in our jobs and communities.

The labor movement has a long history of fighting for civil rights for all Americans and human rights worldwide. Despite major victories over the last 50 years, there is still hard work to do. Unions continue to be at the forefront of the fight for fairness on issues that include immigration, fair trade and workplace equality.

​Roy unexpectedly passed away on Thursday March 25, 2021 of causes still unknown. He was a loving father, grandfather, friend and "Brother." Roy is survived by his children, siblings and grandchildren. Roy has been an influential leader in the labor movement since the mid 1970's. He touched and improved hundreds of lives through his work in the labor movement, inclusive of his 12 years as a union officer and President of CWA Local 9408. Roy is an irreplaceable person and will be missed greatly. Please donate/give back to a family who has given so much. His children will need help in paying all final expenses. Thank you so very much for your generosity.​Follow the Go Fund Me link below to Donate if you can also there is a video link of Roy Granados from 2011 please view if you would like.​
