July 11 — The 700,000-member Communications Workers of America officially endorsed Hillary Clinton to be the next U.S. president, shifting from previously backing Bernie Sanders.
The union July 11 announced it “whole-heartedly endorses” the former secretary of state. The announcement erases the CWA's endorsement of Sanders (I-Vt) in December, who hasn't suspended his campaign despite Clinton being dubbed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
“Hillary Clinton has stood with CWA members and pledges her commitment to making life better for working families,” the CWA said. “She’s walked with us on the Verizon picket line. She supports the call to get big money out of politics. She is committed to ending special treatment for Wall Street and the 1 percent.”
The endorsement announcement comes weeks after CWA president Chris Shelton June 14 said the union was going to shift its support to Clinton to help “stop Donald Trump from becoming president.”
Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee. The CWA's endorsement provides Clinton with the union's members for help with phone banks, neighborhood walks and work-site events. In addition to the CWA, Clinton has received endorsement from the AFL-CIO and its trade workers, as well as from other large labor unions such as the International Association of Machinists and the Service Employees International Union.
