The CWA convention is set for August 29th-30th, in Chicago. There will be various meetings scheduled, as well as bargaining elections/agenda scheduled. Lisa Xavier/Don O’Brien and myself will attend.
Also this is the year for Local elections, if you are interested in running for a steward, DVP or officer, the election committee will start the election process sometime in Sept/Oct timeframe.
Thanks to all who participated in the CWA relay or life, this was another great year. The team raised around $6000 dollars.
As always any questions or concerns, please call the Local .
