About Us

Your Local Union Representative

CWA LOCAL 1170 – As your local union representative – is always working to identify challenges and achieve solutions that will improve work conditions for all. We hold fast to a commitment to our members to address big challenges in the workplace.

CWA (the Communications Workers of America) represents 700,000 workers in public and private sector employment in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico in 1,200 chartered CWA local unions. In 10,000 United States communities, CWA members work in information technology, telecommunications, public service, and law enforcement – among other areas.

CWA LOCAL 1170 – We, the Communications Workers of America, believing that as an integral part of society we are entitled to an equitable share in the products of our labor and realizing that our welfare can best be protected and advanced through the united efforts of all workers, do, through this Constitution, under God, seek to form a more perfect means of securing for ourselves and labor generally full enjoyment of the inherent rights and dignities which our institutions were ordained to preserve.
