CWA President Emeritus Morton "Morty" Bahr, 1926-2019

We are sad to report that CWA President Emeritus Morton Bahr passed away last night. President Bahr joined CWA in 1951 as a telegraph operator at MacKay Radio and Telegraph served as CWA president for 20 years, from 1985-2005. We remember his tireless work on behalf of working people and our thoughts are with his family. Thank you for all you have done for the labor movement, Morty!
