It’s never too early to mobilize! As contract negotiations with AT&T Southeast approach later this year, the CWA bargaining committee held a town hall conference call with CWA members across CWA District 3 to introduce the bargaining team members, provide an update on bargaining strategies, and to talk about ways to mobilize.
CWA members from Locals 3120 and 3121 (top), and 3122 (middle), participated in mobilization trainings as they prepare to show AT&T Southeast that they are ready to fight for a fair contract. Local Presidents who represent AT&T Southeast members in North Carolina gathered to listen to the town hall call (bottom).
The AT&T Midwest bargaining team returned to the bargaining table this week in an attempt to restart meaningful negotiations. They will continue to push AT&T to commit to servicing the customers of the Midwest region with reliable market-leading communications services as they have for decades using CWA members covered by the Midwest Agreement.
The bargaining team is urging members to write a short letter to their members of Congress ask them to investigate what AT&T has done with its tax break windfall since the company is clearly not keeping its promise to using the money to create jobs and keep good jobs in the communities they serve. You can find more information on the letter writing campaign at www.GoodJobsATT.org/CongressLetter.
CWA Local 1109 reached a 4-year tentative agreement with cable television provider Altice in New York. The agreement extends job security provisions and provides contractual yearly wage increases for the bargaining unit.
