Know Your Weingarten Rights!

If an employee has a reasonable belief that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what he or she says, the employee has the right to request union representation. Management is not required to inform the employee of his/her Weingarten rights; it is the employees responsibility to know and request.

"If this discussion can in any way lead to me being disciplined, I respectfully request union representation before I answer any questions"

Protect yourself! Learn it, use it!

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.

Frank J. Fauci Jr.
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

1099s for Strike Benefits
Under explicit direction form our International Union, we will be issueing 1099-misc for Strike Benefits received during the 2016 Verizon Strike. You are free to do whatever you choose when filing your returns. However, CWA is recommending that you report the 1099 when you file. Only weekly flat payments received during the Strike will be reported on the 1099s. Read More...

The Executive board of CWA Local 1120 would like to wish our members a Happy and Healthy Holiday.

2016 was a unforgettable year in which we waged a victorious seven week strike at Verizon and fought and won many contract battles. Each and every member rose to the occasion. We look forward to 2017, where we can build on the victories of this year. 

Medicare Part D
We understand that certain retirees are tripping the income related threshold for Medicare Part D (Rx) premium.  By way of background, Verizon Medicare retirees are enrolled in Medicare Part D through the company sponsored EGWP. Most retirees do not have to pay a Medicare premium associated with this coverage, like they do for Medicare Part B. However, retirees with reported income over a specified IRS threshold are assessed a premium based on their income level. This is known as IRMAA (Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amounts)
For retirees who are assessed this premium, Verizon reimburses the premium after the retiree contacts the Benefits Center and self-identifies. The retiree must then send or fax the letter from Social Security showing their IRMAA amount to the Verizon Benefits Center. The benefit will be reimbursed once IRMAA letter is received and IRMAA reimbursement eligibility is verified.
The paragraph below is from the EGWP pre-notification letter which is included with the age-in materials.
Will my income affect my Medicare Part D premium? 
Some people may have to pay an extra amount because of their yearly income. If you are subject to this extra amount—Social Security, not your Medicare plan—will send a letter telling you what the extra amount will be and how to pay it. Note: If you have to pay an extra amount because of your yearly income, Verizon will reimburse you for that amount. Please contact the Verizon Benefits Center at 1.855.4VzBens (1.855.489.2367) for more information.
Happy Thanksgiving


I want to wish my fellow CWA Members and their families a Happy Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect.  This year has seen its ups and downs, but this membership has persevered and won great victories.  I want to thank you all for your tireless effort, trust, support and dedication through this incredible year.

Frank J. Fauci Jr.
