PROTECTING UNIONS FROM COMPETITION: Union campaigns to bring call centers back to US. “The Communications Workers of America (CWA) launched a political campaign on Tuesday in support of legislation that would pressure companies to locate their telephone call centers in the United States. . . . The bill, offered by Rep.

The bill would also give callers the right to be transferred to a U.S. call center.”
