CWA Local 6132 December 2020 Trial Court Verdict

Dear Members,

On Thursday, December 10, 2020, CWA Local 6132 held a trial court due to charges filed against one of our members. Since the guilty verdict, the former member has requested an appeal to the Membership at our January Membership Meeting on Thursday the 14th. The image below is the verdict from the seven member jury. Clicking the image will send you to a downloadable PDF. A transcript of the letter is below the image.

December 10, 2020

Dear Member Cheryl Lee,

It is the decision of the Trial Court that you are guilty of the charges brought against you by unanimous vote.

The Court, therefore, has determined the following penalty:

A. You shall be fined the sum of $10,000.

C. You shall be expelled from membership in the Union effective immediately from all activities as a member or guest.

D. A public apology and/or recant of damaging statements equal to or greater than the offense should be made.

You have the right to appeal this decision of the Trial Court to a membership meeting of the Local within thirty (30) days of the date of this letter. The Local may affirm or reverse the decision or reduce the penalty. In the event you appeal to the membership of the Local, the penalties will be suspended pending the appeal.
