Major Labor Union Joins Coalition To Regulate Facebook


The leading U.S. communications union is joining a coalition calling for the Federal Trade Commission to break up and regulate Facebook.

Bloomberg reports that the Communications Workers of America (CWA), the top U.S. communications union, has joined the Freedom From Facebook coalition. "We should all be deeply concerned by Facebook's power over our lives and democracy," said Brian Thorn, a researcher for CWA, which currently has approximately 700,000 members. In an email to Bloomberg, Thorn stated that for the FTC to not break Facebook up and impose stronger privacy regulations "would be unfair to the American people, our privacy, and our democracy."
