Big Win for DirecTV Workers in California and Nevada

More than 2,000 DirecTV technicians, warehouse and administrative workers in California and Nevada now have a CWA voice. It's more proof that when workers can make a free and fair choice about union representation – without management harassment, interference or worse – they say, "Union yes."

Tremendous teamwork and solidarity by leaders and members of 15 CWA locals at 26 locations made it happen. Supporting DirecTV workers in the campaign were Locals 9003, 9400, 9408, 9413, 9414, 9415, 9416, 9417, 9419, 9421, 9423, 9504, 9505, 9509 and 9510. Louie Rocha, CWA Senior Campaign Lead, headed up this work from start to finish, and Victor Serrano, special assignment organizer, worked with locals in Southern California and Las Vegas.

Last week, 800 DirecTV call center workers in Huntsville, Ala., joined CWA, and DirecTV workers everywhere are excited about the opportunity for a CWA voice.

AT&T acquired DirecTV in 2015.

Across California and Nevada, DirecTV technicians, warehouse and administrative workers came together for a CWA voice. In every work location, DTV committee members teamed with local union members to get DTV workers signed up.
