Welcome to the Retiree Division
Welcome to the Retiree Division section of Local 1180's new website. More than just a drop-in center, the Retiree Division provides retirees of CWA Local 1180 with a venue to pursue their social, intellectual, and educational interests throughout their retirement. Through thoughtful and creative planning, the staff of the Retiree Division prepares a monthly calendar representing a compilation of some of the greatest activities in the area at any given moment. Broadway shows, trips, speakers, lunches, and interactive workshops allow retirees to socialize with peers, have fun, and learn a little along the way.
We can only begin to tell you about how glad our retirees are to have a one-stop-shopping experience that offers so many ways to keep busy, engaged, and active. We hope that you make the decision to join in on some of the fun. Read the monthly calendar to see what events are coming up, and then call to reserve your space. Remember that we are providing programs for more than 4,000 retirees in the New York City area, so space may be limited.
We have a special welcome gift for all 'newbie' retirees. Or, if you are an existing retiree, stop by the office just to say hello. We can't wait to greet you all.
Welcome to the Retiree Division page of our website. We‘re glad that you are here. CWA Local 1180 is stronger than ever because of you. Your active participation in the Union during the past five decades has allowed Local 1180 to grow and continue to provide benefits to our active and retired members. These benefits and services continue to improve year after year with programs like the Retiree Division. Our discounted trips and free events, workshops, and classes have made the Division the place for more than 20 years for retirees to have fun and gain valuable information. Visit this page to get updates on events for the coming month and important news. You can also find the monthly calendar here under the calendar tab on the 20th of every month. 2019 is going to be great with trips already planned to Maine, Ocean City, and many more exciting places. We’ll continue to have movies at the Union every Monday at 1:00 p.m. – with popcorn, of course. Check the calendar to attend one or more of our benefits workshops to learn how to submit your forms for reimbursement. Some of the special events the Retiree Division has for January include tickets to Cher on Broadway, a Tribute to Dr. King, and our computer class on Streaming Devices and Downloading Entertainment. Call the Retiree Division for more information or just stop by. We’re here for you.

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, educational classes all within a new center housed 97 Hudson Street, on the lower level of the building occupied by Local 1180. The Division continues to reach out to retired members and provide an opportunity that promotes their physical and emotional well-being as they remain active educationally, culturally, and socially. The Retiree Division engages retirees in activities that support a long and healthy retirement with dignity and respect.
