Organizing Update

AT&T In-Home Experts

Last week, 47 AT&T In-Home Experts (IHX) in Mississippi joined the 1,400 IHX workers already part of CWA. The campaign was led by a strong internal committee and bolstered by skilled staff organizers and union presidents from across the state. CWA District 3 Campaign Lead Sheila Sawyer-Reed and Senior Campaign Lead Akeyia M. Johnson helped guide the effort, with aid from several Local Presidents including CWA Local 3511 President Jermaine Travis, CWA Local 3519 President Josh Drinkard, CWA Local 3509 President Mike Hodges, and CWA Local 3517 President Shane Scruggs.

The unit won certification under the terms of the AT&T Voluntary Recognition and Neutrality Agreement. The new IHX members will join CWA Local 3511 in Jackson, Miss.; Local 3519 in Ocean Springs, Miss.; Local 3509 in Hattiesburg, Miss.; and Local 3517 in Tupelo, Miss.

This win could not have happened without unity, collaboration, and skillful organizing. Congratulations to our new In-Home Experts!
