Dispatch from Dallas: Local 6001 is CWA Strong!

Recently the Executive Board of Local 6001 learned a variety of new techniques and strategies for organizing and mobilizing members at New Officer Training in Dallas. Board members attending included: President Tammy Woods; Vice President Donna Bryant; Treasurer Wanda Tanaka; Secretary Renee de la Garza; and Area Representatives Reggie Brooks, Barrye Fregia, and James Womack. During their training, officers learned the importance of improving their communication with members, how to expand their CWA Strong efforts, and how to improve the Local’s involvement in political, civil rights, and human rights programs.

The Board then joined with other attendees from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, and Missouri at CWA’s District 6 Conference to discuss issues that impact members in all five states. One of the highlights of the conference was participating in an action with AT&T employees to protest offshoring of American jobs.

All the Local 6001 officers are looking forward to the October 2018 Delegate Assembly in Dallas, and they’ve already begun planning activities leading up to that meeting to make sure members are fired up and mobilized.
