AT&T's Acquisition of Time Warner Must Include Good Union Jobs

CWA issued a statement congratulating AT&T for its court victory this week winning approval for its acquisition of Time Warner, but noted that the growth of the company must be accompanied by the growth of good union jobs.

CWA also called on AT&T to resolve the outstanding contract negotiations in the Midwest and Legacy T, where workers have been standing up to save and grow jobs in their communities. Likewise, with the Time Warner acquisition, ensuring the freedom of workers at the combined company to join together and have a seat at the table is critical.

In the statement, CWA encouraged the Justice Department to respect Judge Leon's decision and allow the merger to proceed.
