Director's Message

Welcome to the Retiree Division! The Retiree Division provides retirees of CWA Local 1180 with a venue to stay active, informed and involved throughout their retirement. The staff of the Retiree Division prepares a monthly calendar of events that allow retirees to socialize with peers, have fun, and learn about benefits. 

Our new virtual meetings are bringing retirees together in a new way while we continue to find ways to continue to provide the same great trips and events that the Division has become known for.

Be sure to register your email with us so you’ll be up to date on all weekly events!  With a highlight on understanding your health benefits, our weekly live virtual benefit meetings show retirees how to access and utilize the benefits offered by Local 1180 and the NYC-OLR. The new Retiree Division has live, in-person and virtual events, borough meetings and invited speakers from the Plans that provide your health benefits. 

Check the events page often to see new announcements!

Local 1180 Retiree Division History

 

In 1996, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to offer a new benefit to retirees that would assist them in transitioning from a worker to a retiree. The age wave was producing a new group of retirees that had shown a greater interest in remaining active. The Retiree Division was born that year and began offering recreational programming, workshops, and educational classes all within a new center housed at 97 Hudson Street, on the lower level of the building occupied by Local 1180 (6 Harrison Street).

 In 2021, with the changing needs of the union and programmatic changes due to the pandemic, the Division staff offices moved to the 3rd Floor with the staff of the Security Benefits Office.   Virtual meetings became standard and Local 1180 continued to be a key player in improving understanding and access to retiree benefits.

The Retiree Division engages retirees in activities that support a long and healthy retirement with dignity and respect.
