AT&T Voting Cont

We will be at the AT&T store in Meridian on Wednesday this week to collect votes on the TA from members.  We will be there between 12p and 2p.

If you have not had a chance to submit your ballot, PLEASE let us know!  Email the office@cwa7603.org or let Kelly Williamson know so we can get that collected.  Ballots will be counted on Thursday, so get on it if you haven’t already!


Survey on Call Center Stress

Please take this survey to help CWA learn about the causes of stress for call center members, and what we can do to improve job quality. CWA is partnering with Cornell University Professor Virginia Doellgast to conduct this scientific survey.

Here is the link to the survey: https://cornell.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aaUGIEvp7bM5Vkx

The survey takes 10 to 15 minutes and can be completed on a computer, smart phone or tablet.

We need all members to participate in order to make this successful. Thank you for taking the survey and encouraging your coworkers to do the same.



The election committee spent yesterday stuffing envelopes to get election ballots out to our members yesterday.  As you all can imagine, it’s tough work making sure we have addresses for everyone.  We will be doing some final hand-written ballots today, so everyone should have theirs by Friday.

IF by some chance you do not get one, and you are a current member, please email the election committee at election.committee@cwa7603.org and we will make sure you get yours!  You can also see your steward, or call the hall to be put in touch with the committee chair to get one to you ASAP.

All members in the DSL/RCMAC/AT&T centers should have also received an email with information on the 2 candidates for your VP position.  If you did not get that email, then you are not on our distrobution list.  You need to contact the election committee at the above email address to make sure we have all of your current contact info, then we will make sure you get the email.

Thanks everyone!!!


Acting president

Our president, Melanie, has accepted a new position as an outside field tech.  She began this work this week, so she will be taking a sabbatical from many of her union duties until the end of January to focus on learning her new job.  This does not mean she is vacating her position as our president, this just means she is being given the opportunity to focus on learning her new job until the end of January, when she will return to her normal duties.

In the meantime the day to day duties of the president will be handled by Jeremiah Clever.  I understand we’re all used to going to Mel with questions, but we need to try and give her the time she needs to learn her new job, so please direct your questions and concerns to Jeremiah for the time being.  You can email him at jeremiah@cwa7603.org, or call/text him at (208)407-3100.  He’s a good guy, and is ready to help however he can!

Congrats Mel, and we all hope you enjoy your new position!

All employees working at 999 Main in downtown Boise will have the option to get a flu shot on October 5.  Ryan Weeks has organized this benefit that will be held in the Snake River room in the basement of the building.  Information should get emailed to all employees in the office soon, but we wanted to give you the heads up early!  Make sure you schedule your time so you can get in and out as quick as possible on that day.

If you have any questions, feel free to hit up Ryan Weeks!
