We are US and Canada the workers of Change.org and we are forming a union with the Communications Workers of America (CWA), as members of CWA Local 9410 and CWA Canada. We are campaigners, engineers, content creators, designers, product managers, and operations professionals. Together, we work tirelessly to help Change.org achieve its mission of empowering people everywhere to create the change they want to see.
Change.org sits at the intersection of technology and social justice. As part of our mission, we empower our users with the tools that we build and expert campaigning guidance that we provide. We have a collective moral responsibility to ensure that these tools are used for the greater good: to build justice and equity across the world. We need to empower both our users and the people who build the tools that empower them. We work to give everyone around the globe a voice on our open platform through the democratization of activism—and to achieve this, every worker at Change must have a voice, too.
We, the US and Canada workers of Change.org, are brought on board to help the company realize its mission and vision, and we should play a role in shaping the company's future. We believe collective bargaining is the most effective way to ensure that we have the mutually beneficial relationship with management and assurances necessary for that to happen.
Together, with the support of all workers at Change.org, we can build a multicultural, multi-faceted organization that contributes to a more equitable world where no one is powerless.
