By using AT&T (formerly Cingular Wireless), you're supporting the only union wireless company in America - and you're supporting union workers.
After Cingular purchased AT&T Wireless, the new AT&T workers have joined the Communications Workers of America by the thousands, taking advantage of the company's policy of remaining neutral in organizing drives and voluntarily recognizing the union when a majority of workers in a location sign union authorization cards.
Unfortunately, others in this industry have taken the low road when it comes to labor relations. AT&T Wireless used to maintain an aggressive "union avoidance" policy before being bought by Cingular. And today, workers at Verizon Wireless would like the benefits of union representation too, but they are subjected to intense management surveillance and coercion, including firings and even office closures to block unionization.
