Bargaining Update

AT&T Mobility Southwest (Purple)

This week, the CWA District 6 AT&T Mobility Bargaining Team reached an historic tentative agreement with AT&T Mobility Southwest. This agreement will affect approximately 5,000 CWA members spanning Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas.

The agreement will provide a 5 percent raise for employees in 2024 as well as a $1,000 signing bonus and wage increases for multilingual call center employees. Remote workers will now have increased benefits, including a $55 monthly stipend and loss-of-pay protections. AT&T Mobility employees, regardless of title, will now be covered under the Employment Security Commitment, providing greater job security. The agreement also includes improvements to healthcare benefits, retirement benefits, scheduling, and leave. Click here for more details on the tentative agreement.

“This TA was won in part because the Company felt the pressure of our mobilizations,” the Mobilization Team wrote in an email announcing the agreement. “We successfully showed our collective power and supported our bargaining team by taking action across all 5 states of the Purple Mobility contract! Thousands of members mobilized by decorating their workplaces, wearing stickers in support of our issues, making noise and more!”

A contract explanation virtual meeting is being held next week and bargaining unit members will vote on ratifying the agreement.

D6 Reaches TA with ATT Mobility on Purple Contract


Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Last week, bargainers for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette met with CWA District 2-13 Vice President Mike Davis and Bargaining Chair Jon Remington to discuss the contract for the paper’s advertising workers. The advertising workers, members of CWA Local 14827, along with production workers from CWA Local 14842, members of the Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh (TNG-CWA Local 38061), and members of the Teamsters have been on strike at the company since October 2022.

This was the first bargaining session with any of the striking unions since September 2023. During the session, Vice President Davis expressed his intention to resolve outstanding issues and negotiate a fair agreement and his commitment to maintaining solidarity with the other striking units.

The Post-Gazette strike is the longest-running strike in the U.S. and the longest strike ever in Pittsburgh. Click here to learn how you can support the striking workers.
