CWA Local 1180 President Arthur Cheliotis

Full Interview

Cheliotis says the de Blasio administration’s failure to comply with a wage equity lawsuit brought against the city gives CWA Local 1180 cause for pause on the question of whether to endorse de Blasio for reelection:

“It certainly does. One has to match up the actions of elected officials with their rhetoric and if you want to address the issue of inequality and you want to hold people and employers to not discriminating in the work place why not do it in your own house first? And certainly we have demonstrated with the data, and the EEOC agreed with us, that the city has not provided these workers, predominantly women and people of color, the same salaries that were provided to white males.”
