Challenges for Progressive Union Leaders: The State of the Unions
Arthur Cheliotes has been the president of Local 1180, Communications Workers of America AFL-CIO since 1979. He is a vocal advocate for worker education, pay equity, and the enforcement of Civil Service laws. Under his leadership the union engaged in litigation to enforce civil service laws that resulted in the promotion of the largest number of minority women to managerial positions through competitive examination in the City’s history. The Union has instituted and expanded extensive educational and training programs to develop the skills and critical thinking workers need to be effective on the job and in their communities. Arthur Cheliotes has won numerous honors and awards for community service, especially work on behalf of homeless and jobless men and women.
