AT&T LEGACY T BARGAINING REPORT #64

May 22, 2018

The Bargaining Team met with the Company today. They surprised us with a company comprehensive final proposal package. While the Company was explaining the proposal package to us, they released an e-mail to the employees with a more detailed explanation than they were giving the Bargaining Team. We believe this is direct dealing with the membership and it’s an Unfair Labor Practice. We must repeat to you we were still at the bargaining table while this e-mail was telling our members to question the Stewards, Officers, Leadership and the Bargaining Committee before we even had an explanation from the Company. This proposal that has been presented to our members falls far short of our Members’ needs. We are currently seeking legal counsel for our next steps. Their behavior is outrageous and we will be scheduling a call with the Local Presidents.

Now is the time to Unite and Stand Strong!

In Unity,

AT&T LEGACY T BARGAINING REPORT #44

April 26, 2018

The Bargaining Team met today to scrutinize the Company’s comprehensive proposal we received yesterday.  We are formulating proposals in response to their vexing comprehensive package.

We are now 12 days beyond contract expiration.  If the Company wants to reach an agreement they are going to have to take our Members' concerns for the future seriously.

This is your contract.  Let the Company know that you are not going to accept anything less than a fair and just contract.

Many thanks to Local 6450 for the care package we received.  Also, good luck to all the Locals attending the shareholders meeting tomorrow.  GTH!!!

In Unity,

Your Bargaining Committee

AT&T LEGACY T BARGAINING REPORT #34

Brothers and Sisters,

We were unable to reach an agreement by expiration so we will work without a contract until further notice.

Let the Company know loud and clear it is time to agree to a fair and just contract.

Remember, the Company’s net profit in 2017 was $29.3 billion. That equates to $80,273,972 a day, including holidays (that’s like you winning the Powerball every day of the year).

In Unity,

AT&T Workers Vote to Authorize Strike

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

With two contracts covering nearly 14,000 workers at AT&T Midwest AT&T Legacy T set to expire on Saturday, April 14, members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) voted overwhelmingly yesterday to authorize a strike, if necessary. The AT&T Midwest contract covers workers in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, while the Legacy T contract covers workers nationwide.

CWA District 4 Vice President Linda L. Hinton said, “CWA members are prepared to do whatever it takes to get a fair contract at AT&T Midwest that prioritizes job security, healthcare, and retirement. It is time for AT&T to live up to Randall Stephens’ promises to create thousands of new jobs in the U.S. if the Republican corporate tax bill passed. AT&T’s profits and tax windfalls must turn into jobs and employment security for CWA members.”

Vice President of Telecommunications & Technologies Lisa Bolton said, "Our members are ready to fight for a fair contract at AT&T Legacy T, even if that means going on strike. AT&T must stop farming out our work to the lowest bidder. After the tax bill passed, Stephenson promised the company would create 7,000 good, skilled, high-wage jobs. But at our bargaining tables, management demands second tier jobs with second tier wages and second tier benefits. It is time for AT&T to live up to Stephenson’s promises."

About CWA: The Communications Workers of America represents 700,000 working men and women in telecommunications, customer service, media, airlines, public service and manufacturing.
