CWA/AT&T Midwest Bargaining Report #88

February 2nd, 2019

Fighting Today…Focused on the Future!

After many months of little progress in moving towards an acceptable agreement, we are returning to the bargaining table in an attempt to restart meaningful negotiations. We are taking this initiative as we hope the company will begin to make movement from their previous positions. We must know that there is a future for this bargaining unit in AT&T’s plans. So far the company has not indicated a willingness to include us. We will continue to push AT&T to commit to servicing the customers of the Midwest region with reliable market leading communications services they have for decades using CWA members covered by the Midwest Agreement.

We need your help!

Currently there is a letter writing mobilization campaign. The action is to write a short letter to your member of congress; ask them to investigate what AT&T has done with their tax break money. Thus far, the only things we have seen from the windfall AT&T received from their permanent tax break are continued job cuts and offshoring. There has also been a historical unwillingness to bargain a contract that includes acceptable job security or access to jobs of the future.

Write the letter…we need your help!.

We will do whatever it takes to make progress towards a fair agreement.

Thank you for your continued actions in support of this bargaining team.
