Per Local 1051 By-Laws, the Executive Vice President, which is myself, takes over as President effective immediately.
And we have an election for a new executive vice president.
This process has begun. The election committee, which consists of Dave Allard, and Barbara Gaudreau, met and sent out nomination papers this past Friday throughout the local. If you need a paper please see the steward or DVP in your area. We will also have a section on our web page, so you can download the nomination paper and keep up on the details. If anyone has any questions at all regarding this process feel free to contact the local.
The eboard discussed the new article 43, which covers merging of AT&T local service tech's, with AT&T comm. and building techs. This new article 43 is located on our web page and we have a separate section for all article 43 issues. DVP Fran Mahr, and DVP Don O’Brien will start the process of meeting with the local techs, and management to answer any questions.
The CWA convention is in Anaheim, Ca this year. The dates are 8/30 – 8/3. Myself, Secretary Treasurer Lisa Xavier, the newly elected EVP and DVP Don O’Brien will attend. The eboard voted for Don to attend the convention because he is handling the tech issues, and he can meet some of the players at the convention and attend some tech meetings.
One of our stewards, Anthony Richards, has been called to active duty in Irag. Anthony works in our AT&T Fairhaven office, and the Eboard voted to give Anthony a 500 dollar donation.. we will also be having a farewell gathering in fairhaven on June 14th. If you see Anthony please wish him well .
