Happy Holidays


The Executive Board of CWA Local 1120 would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Holiday Season as well as good riddance to 2020! 

A Message From The President

The Executive Board welcomes all Communications Workers of America, AFL,CIO Local 1120 members to our web page. The purpose of this web page is to provide a means of supplying information about our local and labor issues.    To all cwa local 1120 members. I want to thank all of my fellow union brothers and sisters for their commitment, and determination in keeping our local strong. Together we can overcome any challenge that we may face.

James Gescheidle
President, CWA Local 1120


 We must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.
Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote.”

Martin Luther King

Broadband Bill
With just a few days left for Gov. Cuomo to sign the Broadband Data Collection bill to study the impact of broadband access throughout NYS, we need to make sure he gets the message loud and clear: EVERY New York household needs affordable broadband access and the first step is getting an accurate picture of who doesn’t have access now.
Call 855-979-3344 right now to urge the Governor to sign this important bill TODAY.

Congratulations to the New Retirees

We would like to congratulate all our members that have recently retired or will retire in the next few weeks. This is not the way we would have liked to congratulate you. We would have much rather been able to do it in person but in the current COVID situation we have to adapt. We have members at Vassar, Verizon, and Marist that have all retired or will by the end of the year. We would like to thank you for your years of hard work, dedication and solidarity. It is the membership that shapes and empowers this Union. We wouldn't be able to enjoy the benefits that we currently enjoy without you, your hard work and we won't forget it.  So again CONGRATULATIONS, BE SAFE AND MOST OF ALL ENJOY YOUR NEXT CHAPTER. THANK YOU!!!!

Jim Gescheidle
