CWA District 9 Opens Bargaining with DIRECTV

Last week, the CWA District 9 DIRECTV (DTV) Field Operations Bargaining Committee opened negotiations for a new contract. Amongst other demands, members are seeking wage increases, pension contribution increases, improved medical benefits, and more funding for education. The current agreement expires on April 6.

In a letter to members, CWA District 9 Vice President Frank Arce encouraged members to participate in mobilization efforts, writing, “We must influence the decision-makers at DTV that bringing in a timely, just, and fair contract is the only route to take. We do this by Mobilizing. Your local will be rolling out a comprehensive mobilization plan so that we can all engage and let DTV know we will not accept anything less than a fair and just Contract.”

CWA District 9 will open contract negotiations with AT&T West on February 21.
