About Us

The NewsGuild - Communication Workers of America (TNG-CWA) is a labor union. The CWA, our parent union, represents over 700,000 people around the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. The NewsGuild represents tens of thousands of workers including medical and legal interpreters, ESL teachers, journalists, and more.

We want TNG-CWA to be the home for interpreters. It is not enough to represent interpreters in one place; we need to bring all interpreters together across the country to advance the profession.

If you are inspired to bring your colleauges together and improve working conditions, consider joining the national committee. The national organizing committee is not just for supporters but for activists who want to help create change in the profession.
