On Wednesday, February 6, 2024, our CWA Mobility Bargaining Team walked into the AT&T Labor Relations offices in Austin, Texas. CWA Local 6132 was there to meet and support them. This will be the 1st of two contracts for District 6 and we wish them the best of luck. We will be updating the website as new information becomes available and you can always check the CWA District 6 site for updates as well.
As mentioned at our last meeting, you can find scholarship information under the “For Members” tab.

Due to an issue with the Post Office, CWA Local 6132 is forced to send out new ballots for the current race for CWA Local 6132 President. It was brought to the Executive Board’s attention when the Election Committee drove to collect the ballots and were told the box had been closed. After receiving guidance from CWA District 6, the Election Committee has been instructed to send out new ballots.
This has never happened before and the Election Committee is doing everything they can to get these ballots out as quickly as possible which will more than likely be this afternoon (10/16/2023).
You must send the ballots included in the new mailouts.
We thank you for your understanding and patience.
The new date for counting the ballots will be Wednesday, November 8th, 2023.
On Thursday, September 14th, 2023, all but one of our Local Executive Board Members were voted in by acclamation.
The Local Election Committee is currently hard at work stuffing envelopes and sticking stamps to make sure ballots are sent out for you to receive before the end of the week.
There are two candidates for Local President and we need you to return your ballots as soon as possible so they can be counted on Monday, October 16th, 2023.
Here is your Local Executive Board for 2024-2026 so far:

We will update this site once our President has been elected.
This was sent to us on May 15th by Sylvia Ramos, Assistant to the Vice President of District 6.
Dear Local Presidents,
I am pleased to announce that the Frontier contract has ratified overwhelmingly.
I would like to congratulate CWA Representative Tony Shaffer who chaired the bargaining table along with Staff Representatives Cheryl Dawson and Kara Hutchason who assisted in the process, as well as, bargaining committee members Travis Pirotte, President Local 6171, Jason Peavler, President Local 6132, Allen Whitaker, Rose Sash-Phillips, Star Kraus, and Kevin Davis for their hard work, long hours, strategic planning and dedication that they demonstrated over the past 10 months of some of the toughest negotiations that we have faced with this company.
As a result of these negotiations our members will benefit from this language for years to come.
April is also Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Defined as an any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving, distracted driving not only endangers the safety of the driver, but their passengers and bystanders on the roads as well. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates on average, nine (9) people are killed every day in distraction-affected motor vehicle crashes in the United States. The most alarming distraction trend has become cellphone-related usage while operating a vehicle, although additional distractions such as eating/drinking, grooming, using navigational devices, and adjusting radio/climate controls can also play a factor.
*For Drivers – Turn off electronic devices and avoid reaching for them while driving. Be alert for pedestrians and cyclists, especially those who may be distracted themselves.
*For Parents – Set a good example and talk with your teens about responsible and safe driving.
*For Passengers – Speak up when a driver is not paying attention while behind the wheel. Offer to make the call/text for them, so their full attention can remain on the road.
