Hide Profile

The CWA, founded in 1947, and the Bell Co. have had an intertwined history. Originally part of AT&T, under the Bell System, Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. and the CWA negotiated many contracts, often with the use of strikes. They achieved their first nation-wide contract in 1974. The divestiture of AT&T in 1984 threatened to break-up the CWA.
