Dear Union Sisters and Brothers:
I am reaching out to you regarding CWA Local 6001’s receivership status, upcoming membership meetings and to provide information on a Special Election for Delegates to the 2021 CWA National Convention.
On or about May 28, 2021, I was notified that CWA Local 6001 had been placed into receivership. The CWA National Executive Board voted in favor of a request that was made by two of the Elected Executive Board, an online petition, and several emails from members in good in standing requesting that the Local be placed into receivership. I have been assigned as the Temporary Administrator to oversee the receivership process.
On Friday, May 28, 2021, I talked with all 4 Elected Officers of Local 6001 informing them of the receivership status. I collected all keys to the union hall, credit cards, and requested updates on all upcoming scheduled meetings and grievances.
We will be hosting membership meetings in your areas in the next coming weeks to address any concerns you may have. These meetings will be held at or near the airport stations. More information will be provided to you in the coming days.
The CWA National Biennial Convention is scheduled October 17-19, 2021 in New Orleans, LA. Due to the receivership status a special election will be held to elect eight (8) Delegates to attend the Convention to represent the Local. An Alternate Delegate will also be elected who will replace an Elected Delegate should one of the elected Delegates be unable to attend. The eight (8) Delegates will equally carry the full voting strength of CWA Local 6001. This special election will be held during the month of July.
In closing, my commitment to the members of CWA 6001 is that your local will be fully functioning throughout this entire process. I will look for ways to improve on past practices and to implement changes for the betterment of the local whenever necessary. I take this responsibly extremely seriously and will strive to do whatever it takes to help this local become self-sustaining. While I serve as the Temporary Administrator should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 817 868-9933.
I look forward to serving this Local and working with all the great Members & Retirees of CWA 6001.
In Unity & Solidarity,
CWA Staff Representative
CWA 6001 Temporary Administrator
