Welcome to the website of the ADW/DW Association of the New York City Department of Correction.

Our organization represents the members in the rank of Assistant Deputy Warden, Deputy Warden, Deputy Warden in Command, and those who have retired from the Association.

The ADW/DW Association purpose and objective is to ensure the membership has a voice in working conditions, pay, benefits, and a venue to receive new information in a timely manner.

Once a contract is negotiated and signed, the Union works to enforce it—holding management’s feet to the fire and invoking contract grievance procedures if management chooses not to. The Association contracts are the guarantors of decent wages, fair promotion, health coverage, job security, paid time-off and retirement income.
