CWA Local 1180

Our union is a family comprised of more than 9,000 members who work for City of New York agencies and several authorities, more than 6,200 retirees, and a dozen-plus nonprofit organizations. As administrative and supervisory workers, we process payrolls, manage computer systems, monitor contracts, pay vendors, supervise frontline staff, and more. We are the hidden human infrastructure that makes the City work.

From the newest to the most experienced worker, we learn from each other and work together to make our Union stronger. Local 1180 is the backbone that supports our members in advancing their careers. When we stand as one, we have the strength to fight for what’s important — fair and decent wages, good benefits, safe working conditions, and stronger communities.

But it takes a family to get the job done and that’s why Local 1180 is counting on you to get involved. An informed, active membership is the key to a strong union and our success.
