Nancy Hall, Secretary, CWA Local 6215, Dallas, TX.
Nancy Hall began her career as a Service Representative with SWBT in 1979 when she was just a child. Two weeks after she was hired, she was contacted by a steward and immediately joined the labor movement. Due to her ability to be outspoken and commitment to helping others, Nancy became a job steward in her first year of employment. It wasn’t until 1995 that she transferred into the job as a Communications Consultant, a title she still holds today.
In 1989, her Chief Steward ran for an officer of the local, so she ran for Chief Steward and won that election. In 1992, she was elected Secretary of CWA Local 6215 and has served in this position ever since.
In 2004, Nancy was selected to attend the Minority Leader Institute in Silver Springs, Maryland. In 2007, she served on the CWA National Finance Committee and in 2008 she served as Chair of this committee. 2007 – 2009 Nancy served as President of the Dallas AFL-CIO Labor Council. July 20-30, 2008, Nancy was selected as part of a six-member delegation formed by the AFL-CIO’s Solidarity Center to find out about the plight of labor unionists in Columbia. It opened her eyes to the dangers in other parts of the world to simply be a union member.
