Friday night, the Union Committee joined CWA Local 6132 on an informational picket line in front of the facility where negotiations are taking place.  Local 6132 did a great job of getting their Members to this Mobilization event.  Members from other Labor Unions, as well as the CWA Staff from the Austin office, joined us on the picket line.  Great job Local 6132.  Your CWA Committee wants to thank Local 6407 for the card signed by their Members, and the picture they sent of their Members engaged in a Mobilization event.  The Union Committee and the Company will continue meeting throughout the weekend.  We will update these reports as events necessitate.
