District 6 Report

1st. Quarter Report 2019

Hello All District 6 Members
This report is the first for 2019. I hope all of you are well and rested from the holidays. The state board members have had a busy time since 2019 started. We had the state presidents meeting in Denton, followed by the N.B.A. school in San Marcos, and then the state board members and all the LCCL from all over the state made a legislative trip to Washington D.C. I believe that those who attended had a great time, and from all the reports afterward, a lot was accomplished as the members visited their congressman’s office to discuss bills that effect letter carriers every day. District board meetings are now starting all over the state. If you are able, please attend one of these meetings and learn what the state association is all about. The district six meeting will be held April 28, 2019, at the Austin branch union hall starting at 9 am. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. The state convention will be held in Denton this year on June 26 thru June 28, 2019. I urge everyone that can attend to do so, as several issues such as bylaws, appeals, and elections will be brought to the floor of the convention. I feel the state association is in danger of being gutted by some misguided individuals who want to change the bylaws. I feel some changes do need to be made to the bylaws, to bring the bylaws up to date with the times, but not wholesale changes. In closing, I hope to see all of you at the convention.
