The Bargaining Team met with the Company today and passed the following proposals:

  • Amended proposals to Art 16.7 & Art 24.5  raising relocation money
  • Retirement Related Benefit Eligibility to add age 60 & 15 years of NCS
  • Amended proposal for Appendix 2 Special City Allowance adding Greenwood Village, CO
  • National Transfer Plan adding AT&T of the Virgin Islands INC & DTV LLC to Attachments A&B
  • Union’s counter to Company’s proposal on repopulation of titles eliminated during 2018 collective bargaining

The Company withdrew Company Proposal 1 to eliminate Appendix 6, conditioned on the Union accepting the moving of the following letters into Appendix 6:

  • Appendix 4 Metro Segment Incentive Compensation Plan
  • Memorandum of Agreement – Single, One-Time Pension Contribution for Eligible Employees
  • Building Construction
  • (S) Pension Asset Transfer
  • (V) Special Social Security Supplement
  • (m) Metro Segments – Performance Appraisals
  • (s) Pension Computation for Employees in Metro Segments
  • (xx) Customer Sales and Service-Commission (CSSS-S) Title Change Agreement

The Company also responded to several open RFI’s. We will review the data and respond accordingly.

Remember, the Company’s net profit in 2017 was $29.3 billion. That equates to $80,273,972 a day, including holidays (that’s like you winning the Powerball every day of the year).

We will continue to work towards a fair and just contract for all.

In Unity,

Your Bargaining Committee
