Did you know...
...that CWA 1168 partners with several other healthcare organizations in WNY to support the Health Sciences Charter School?
We have an ongoing toiletry drive for students in need at the school. Anytime you travel, bring back your complimentary soap, shampoo, lotion or other products provided by the hotel. Additionally, full size personal care items including bath products, deodorant, hair care items, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and feminine hygiene products are appreciated and very much needed!
We ask that everyone in attendance at our September 17 membership meeting could bring in a few size items to donate to the drive. While the drive is ongoing throughout the year, we’re trying to make a big push in September. If you’re unable to attend the meeting, please drop off items anytime this month to the Union office at 1900 Sweet Home Road.

Planned Parenthood Central NY United for CWA
"...today, July 17th, with red shirts..."
The 63 clinical workers at Planned Parenthood in Central NY officially kicked off their public organizing campaign today with red shirts and scrubs all around. A mission statement is also circulating signed by a majority of the staff.
Workers are prepared to stick together until they win recognition and a fair contract. The Local and District have worked hard to line up political and community support for the staff at PPCNY as they stand together and demand a voice at work and recognition for CWA as their Union. For as long as their fight takes they will have the support of their brothers and sisters in CWA. Check this space for the latest updates!
“What has the Union done for me?” is heard all too often at the proverbial water cooler. Merriam Webster defines union as “an organization of workers formed to protect the rights and interests of its members.” You are part of that organization, so in fact, YOU are the Union! read more...
