CWA/ATTM Orange Bargaining Report #3

CWA / AT&T Orange Bargaining Report #3

January 28, 2022

Today concludes the first week of bargaining with AT&T Mobility, and the Bargaining Committee has addressed multiple issues already. We spent a significant amount of time on issues concerning Wireless Technicians working in hazardous conditions, scheduling for Call Center, Retail, and Work from Home. We addressed issues that apply to everyone including holidays and absence reporting. The Union is also looking to protect workers for the duration of this Pandemic and put language in place that will safeguard you in the event of another health crisis.

The Bargaining Committee has multiple information requests that the Company needs to fulfill before we can proceed on many issues. As we noted earlier in the week, the Company passed a benefits proposal that was concessionary and disregards the needs of their employees. AT&T was quick to point out that they are the only Unionized wireless carrier, and we demand that they begin to act like it. AT&T just posted record earnings which is what we all want, but when AT&T succeeds its because of your hard work and you must share in the good fortune.

The Union knows there are issues we will agree on, and we know that at the end of the day this round of negotiations will end with a Contract that is fair and equitable for ALL!!

WE will  prevail—ONE  DAY  LONGER,  ONE  DAY  STRONGER!!
