AT&T West

The 15,000 CWA workers at AT&T West are working without a contract after their collective bargaining agreement expired on Sunday.

"We're going to continue fighting for a fair contract while we stay on the job," said CWA District 9 Vice President Tom Runnion. "For weeks we have called on AT&T West to get serious about bargaining and negotiate a fair agreement for its workers. Our members showed their determination to achieve a fair contract with over 95 percent voting to authorize a strike if necessary. That remains an option."

AT&T is a very profitable company and its $49 billion purchase of DirecTV closed last July. However, in bargaining for the workers who have helped make it successful, AT&T is demanding outrageous concessions.

CWA members are mobilizing across District 9, putting the company on notice that they're serious about getting a good contract. Negotiations cover workers at AT&T West in California and Nevada.
