Our membership reflects the diversity of New York City. About 7,400 of us work for the New York City Housing Authority, another 11,000 members work in New York City agencies, the Health and Hospitals Corporation, Jacob Javits Center and the City University of New York, and some 3,000 members work on Long Island. We also represent over 7,100 retirees across the country and overseas.

White collar, blue-collar, peace officers, technicians and professionals -- we are the lifeblood of the community. We are also an integral part of New York, because it is here that we live, raise our families and pay taxes.
