CWA/ITU Negotiated Pension Plan

Established in 1967, the CWA/ITU Negotiated Pension Plan is a multi-employer, defined benefit pension plan for the Communications Workers of America (CWA), the largest telecommunications union in the world. It was one of the first pension plans to sign on to Ceres' 10-point Call for Action plan advocating the need to highlight financial risks posed by climate change, and spurring the creation of INCR. Administered at the Plan Office in Colorado Springs, Colo., the CWA/ITU pension plan currently has 27,000 active participants and pensioners, and 400 contributing employers. It joined INCR in 2003.
