Wireless workers from AT&T Mobility, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile joined a CWA town hall call this week to share their stories about how they are standing up for their rights here in the U.S. and around the world.
As a first step in improving working conditions in the wireless industry, workers across the country are signing on to the Wireless Workers United Statement of Principles.
"In talking together, it became clear really fast that we all share the same goals when it comes to pay and metrics and our desire for good jobs that support our families," said Maritza Lara, who works at a T-Mobile retail store in Laredo, Texas, and is a member of T-Mobile Workers United. "We all want good wages, fair metrics, and an end to the pressure to engage in unethical practices. The Statement of Principles that we wrote together is our vision of what a wireless industry with integrity would look like."
