Bargaining Update

Bargaining Opens at AT&T West

Negotiations for a new contract with AT&T West opened yesterday. The current contract, which expires on April 6, covers approximately 5,500 workers in California and Nevada.

In a letter to members, CWA District 9 Vice President Frank Arce laid out the goals for bargaining which include ensuring that members are protected from arbitrary downsizing and outsourcing, enhancing pension plans, improving medical coverage benefits, and strengthening language around contracting to protect our members from the negative impacts of outsourcing and subcontracting.

Vice President Arce warned members that “bargaining may be contentious this time.” He continued, writing, “I urge each of you to stay informed, stay engaged, and be prepared to support your union in any action that may be required to achieve our goals at the bargaining table.”

Altice Bargaining Opens in West Virginia

Bargaining opened last week between CWA and Altice USA in West Virginia. CWA members of both Local 2002 and Local 2007 set clear priorities for negotiations, including job security, securing bargaining unit work, safety, quality affordable healthcare, and compensation that recognizes the value our members bring.

The West Virginia technicians formed their union with CWA in 2019 and ratified a first contract in 2020 that guaranteed pay raises, provided job security, and established grievance and arbitration rights for the workers. CWA members seek to build on the 2020 contract and negotiate a fair contract that provides the pay and benefits they have earned and deserve.
