Welcome to Local 3207's Web site!

CWA, a 501(c)(5) organization is America's largest communications and media union, representing over 700,000 men and women in both private and public sectors, including over a half million workers who are building the Information Highway.

CWA members are employed in telecommunications, broadcasting, cable TV, journalism, publishing, electronics and general manufacturing, as well as airline customer service, government service, health care, education and other fields. We represent employees of AT&T in the Central Savannah River Area covering the east side of Georgia and the west side of South Carolina. We also cover employees of Palmetto Rural Telephone Coop in South Carolina.

The Union includes some 1,200 chartered local unions across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Members live in approximately 10,000 communities, making CWA one of the most geographically diverse unions.

We are practicing socal distancing.  Masks will be required.  Your safety and the safety of others is the priority. Click here for Covad-19 info at the CWA National Website.

We will be sending you important votes via US Mail. If you are unsure we have your correct address, please send your name and full address including zip code to

 Attention Members!  The April Membership Meeting has been cancelled.  The next meeting will be Tuesday, May 4, 2021.

Pro Act Passes in the House -- On Tuesday, with bipartisan support, the U.S. House passed the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, one of CWA's top priorities for building worker power. The PRO Act would be a game-changer for millions of workers by making it easier to join unions, win first contract agreements, and engage in more powerful strikes.

President Biden has said he will sign the PRO Act as soon as it lands on his desk, making the fight in the U.S. Senate the key to giving working people the tools they need to regain power in their workplaces. While the PRO Act also passed the House during the most recent Congress, CWA activists did not take Tuesday's vote for granted. They worked tirelessly to make sure CWA members contacted their members of Congress about the importance of the bill. Their efforts paid off – not only did the bill pass, but three members of Congress who voted against the bill in 2020 voted for it this time.  CLICK HERE to read more and for information on contacting your Senator.

House Bill 531 - - Call your Georgia State House and State Senate representative and let them know what you think of House Bill 531 - a bill which restricts the way in which you can vote. It removes no excuse absentee voting which will force many to stand in long lines at reduced precincts. They are trying to make it as difficult as possible for you to vote.

Joseph Beirne Scholarship

The Foundation’s Board of Directors has approved the awarding of sixteen (16) partial college scholarships of $4,000 each for two years. Eligible for the scholarships are CWA members, their spouses, children, and grandchildren, including the dependents of retired, laid-off, or deceased members. Applications will be available solely online for submission on the Foundation’s website at http://cwa-union.org/beirne-application.

The triangle symbolizes the three major programs of the union:
  • Representation
  • Organizing
  • Community/Political Action
If the triangle is broken on any side, sooner or later it will be broken on every side. CWA's founding President, Joseph Bierne, called this the "triple threat".
