FAITH AT WORK
CWA Local 1118
Gil Carey has served as president of CWA Local 1118 since 2008 and has been active in the union for four decades,
serving in many different capacities including Business Agent and Vice President.
In 2016 CWA Local 1118 was part of the historic Verizon strike that involved 40,000 workers up and down the east
coast. In his role as president, Gil was part of the CWA bargaining team beginning in June of 2015.
After 14 months of difficult bargaining, the strike was called. Gil was still bargaining in Rye, NY and then Washington,
DC until the tentative contract was announced on May 27, 2016.
The commitment of CWA's leaders and members and their success at galvanizing broad public support led to one of the
most significant labor victories in recent memory. They won more jobs for workers in the United States and fair wages
and benefits for their members. Since the resolution of the strike, Gil has worked to support and protect members
and respond to strike-related issues.
In Addition to
serving the needs of local 1118's members, Gil has been speaking out locally about the support labor needs from the community.
He also speaks out about the need for labor to fight for other workers. He is building the fighting spirit by speaking
at events and inspiring others to take on the corporate bullies.
