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 Working From Home/Garaging from Home

As the Company is planning on returning to workplaces after this pandemic, they have made plans for their administrative groups which include their management staff and nonunion workforce. As you may have seen earlier this week, the Company released a video that described three different work groups, Work Based, Home Based and Hybrid Workforce groups who will be returning to the workplaces over the next four months.

The plans outlined in the Company’s video do not include the unionized workforce. The Company has yet to have these discussions with the Union. We plan on meeting with the Company in the next few weeks to discuss their plans and the impact it may have on our members. In the meantime, we agreed to the Company’s proposals to extend the Covid-19 Work at Home and Home Garaging agreements for another 30 days.

We will keep you informed with regards to those discussions.

Verizon Garaging and Working From Home Extended
The garaging from home and working from home agreements between CWA and Verizon has been extended to May 31, 2021. As the Covid cases decrease and the vaccine availability increases members should prepare for these agreements to end.
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.

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