The CWA - Public, Healthcare & Education Workers (PHEW) counts more than 140,000 members from coast to coast in state and local government, and healthcare. From 9-1-1 dispatchers to social workers, campus workers to nurses, administrative assistants to librarians, PHEW members are working to make the core public services and institutions of our country work. 

PHEW's mission is to build the power of public sector, healthcare and education workers, and to mobilize an agenda for economic justice and democracy. Through organizing, strategic campaigning, education and training, and mobilization, PHEW unites voices of members from across our union in action for the common good.
