Dear Sisters and Brothers,

The Covid-19 Pandemic has been challenging for everyone.  CWA has worked with, and occasionally pressured the City to ensure that the safety of our members and their families came first.   Together, we were able to accomplish several good benefits and extra safety precautions:

New rules may be adopted or the present rules may be changed by a majority of the members present at a membership meeting where a quorum is present provided the proposed new rule was introduced at a previous membership meeting or by referendum of the membership.

Adopted: July 18, 1974
Amended: May 24, 1978
Amended: December 29, 2016
Amended: August 31, 2020


The City Council and Mayor de Blasio are very close to an agreement on the City budget. 

We wanted to let you know as soon as we could that CWA’s contacts are telling us that in this new budget deal, TRAFFIC WILL REMAIN PART OF THE NYPD. Our hard work is paying off:  our petitions, our phone calls, the articles we published, have convinced the Mayor and the Council that TRAFFIC SHOULD STAY IN THE NYPD. 

Make a Call to the City Council Today!

We believe in police reform. We believe that Black Lives Matter. But we do not accept moving Traffic out of the Police Department!
