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.
Director's MessageThe Retiree Division was in the middle of providing benefit reimbursement support and social events for 1180 retirees when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Without warning, we had to pack up our things, close our doors, and relocate in order to work from home and be able to continue to service our retirees from a different location.

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.
