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



What's New at CWA 1120
VZ Home Garaging
As a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic, the Garaging From Home agreement has been extended until April 30th, 2021.
NYS Paid Time Off For Vaccine
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation Friday authorizing four hours of paid time off per vaccine injection for all New York's public and private employees. 

Essential employees have been on the front lines of this pandemic since day one, and as we begin to work toward a new normal in a post-pandemic world, it is critical that these employees are able to get vaccinated as quickly as possible to protect themselves and their families. This legislation will allow both public and private employees to take time off to get vaccinated without exhausting the leave they have earned.

Please continue using the same core precautions that we have employed throughout the pandemic: Wear a mask, socially distance and wash/sanitize your hands.

Below is the Verizon policy pertaining to time off to receive the COVID vaccine. Read More...

To access the Health Assessment go to login and then go to benefits connection.
