RE:CWA Local 1133 is Placed Under Temporary Administration
CWA Executive Board

DATE: October 21, 2022



Dear Member:

On October 20, 2022 the CWA Executive Board placed Local 1133 into temporary administration. The purpose of a Temporary Administration (trusteeship) within CWA is to allow the National Union to temporarily conduct the affairs of the Local until the problems that led to the trusteeship are resolved.  

Erin Spaulding, CWA Staff Representative has been appointed by the CWA Executive Board as Temporary Administrator of CWA Local 1133. Therefore, Erin will have complete control over the Local and its functions until the Temporary Administration is lifted.

We are committed to ensuring that you, our members, receive the representation deserved during the period of trusteeship. The local office will continue to be staffed during the temporary administration so please call if you need any representational assistance.

We are committed to working hard to resolve the internal problems inside the Local and to turn the running of the Local back over as soon as possible. We will keep you updated in the coming weeks.  


OPEIU 153, afl-cio
