public trade and labor unions may be battered and on the ropes in
our new post-Citizens United gilded age, but one municipal union’s
still kicking butt and taking names for its rank and file members.
Join women’s rights in the workplace advocates Jack Tuckner and
Deborah O’Rell as they visit with Robert Cassar, President of CWA
Local 1182, the labor union representing 3,000 traffic and
sanitation enforcement agents in NYC. Hear how Robert has fought
for and won numerous important bargaining concessions from the
City, including substantially enhancing the status, safety and pay
for his hardworking brother and sister members (who perform a
thankless, difficult and dangerous job) through his staunch
advocacy and activism for more than 20 years, the longest serving
President in the history of the local.
