Thank you for calling Local 1051's information tape; this is Tuesday August 9, 2005, President Teoli speaking
Bargaining is still underway in the numerous Towns; hopefully all contracts will be signed and ratified shortly. If you have a question in your area, please see your steward.
The CWA convention is set for August 29th-30th, in Chicago. There will be various meetings scheduled, as well as bargaining agenda/bargaining elections scheduled. Lisa Xavier/Don O’Brien and myself will attend. I know there are a lot of questions regarding our AT&T contract and the impact of the SBC merger, we will try to get as much information as possible. If you have a specific question, please write it down give it to a steward and we will try to get it answered at the convention.
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.
As always any questions or concerns, please call the Local.
Thanks for calling Local 1051’s information tape, Have a great day.
