CWA Local 1101

Stay Informed

Earlier today, Verizon announced that management and non-union employees who report to company buildings and retail stores will be mandated to be vaccinated against COVID-19, unless they have a medical or religious exemption.
CWA has launched a national vaccination survey for members. It is strictly voluntary. We want to know what you think about COVID-19 vaccines so we can make sure we provide you with information you need to make informed decisions about vaccinations. The survey is for all members whether you have had a vaccination, plan on getting a vaccination, or do not want to get a vaccination.
For current Verizon employees: The SPV's and Article 8's for Central Office Technician jobs are posted on Verizon/About You. You can view the openings on the Local 1101 website Bargaining Units>Verizon>SPV page, but you must be signed into About You to apply for the positions.

Unions are one of the most powerful tools we have to overcome divisions. When we organize against injustice in our workplaces, bargain a contract, attend a rally or raise funds for disaster relief we are taking action to benefit everyone. Being CWA Strong means that we are there for each other, every day, no matter what.

World Trade Center Health Program and Victim Compensation Fund

Did you work at or near Ground Zero following 9/11? It's not too late to register for the World Trade Center Health Program and the Victim Compensation Fund.

If you lived or worked near Ground Zero following 9/11, and never registered with the World Trade Center Health Program and/or the Victim Compensation Fund, it's not too late. You may have seen mention of a July 29, 2021 deadline, which applied to people with a 9/11 related illness certified by the WTCHP prior to July 29, 2019 who needed to file a VIctim Compensation Fund claim by 7/29/21. But if you never registered with the WTCHP, or are registered with the WTCHP and have not registered with the VCF, you can still do both. Click here for more information.
