There have been no breakthroughs in negotiations yet this week. This committee has continued to lookfor ways to draw AT&T off their current stances and address the concerns that CWA members have identified.
CWA and AT&T Bargaining Committees met in New Jersey today where AT&T finally properly passed us their “Final Offer” proposal package, which contains details of the so-called highlights which they have been emailing to you the membership since last week.
This week the CWA bargainers met to review our proposals and outstanding data requests, and to prepare responses to AT&T’s recent proposals, which did not address the issues that we have been talking to them about for months.
The bargaining committees met this week and discussed monitoring in the Retail stores and Call Centers, and the Company’s unilateral changes to the MI-60 assignment in the Call Centers. We will revisit this next week when bargaining reconvenes.
The Bargaining Committee and the Company met today to continue our dialogue on the Company’s proposed changes to Retail commissions for September and October, which many of you saw posted previously on the My CSP.
