One of the charges of the CWPA Labor Committee is to develop relationships with other professional and academic labor organizations. Towards that end, this page contains links to (or contact information for) organizations/groups advocating for academic labor equity/fairness. Where possible, we're connecting directly to pages that are explicitly about labor. Also, if you're on this page looking for Position Statements, you can find those HERE.
If you want your group/organization/committee listed on this page, or if you need to update information, you can email us.

From the Position Description: "The CCCC labor liaison is a contact point and resource for questions associated with the labor of composition instruction. The liaison communicates with CCCC members who have questions about labor practices associated with writing instruction, providing guidance on strategies, resources, and activities. The liaison is also charged with developing and maintaining resources that can be useful for members, using the NCTE/CCCC domain as a source for these resources. The liaison should aggregate existing NCTE/CCCC resources, draw together resources from other organizations or sources that might be useful, and to create resources that can help members use these resources to their best advantages."
