About Annie Hill
Annie Hill was elected Secretary-Treasurer of the Communications Workers of America on July 11, 2011, by delegates to the Union's 73rd Convention.
With the CWA President, Hill works to advance the membership's top priorities and initiatives.
Hill has been a leader in CWA since her earliest days as a union member. Most recently, she has served for three years as CWA Vice President for District 7, representing workers in 14 states. She was elected to that post in 2005.
As Vice President, Hill bargained critical contracts for members at Qwest Communications, among other employers, and put in place new structures in the district to better represent members across that region.
Hill also was a member of the executive board committee on diversity which was created to help give persons of color, women and local union leaders a greater voice on the executive board. That measure was adopted by convention delegates in 2007.
She joined CWA in December 1976 as an outside technician for Pacific Northwest Bell, and was elected to two terms as president of Local 7904 in Salem, Oregon. She joined the District staff in Minneapolis in 1990. She went on to serve as an administrative assistant to the Vice President in 1994, then assistant to the Vice President in 1999, and then Executive Vice President in 2008.
