THANKS TO ALL THAT CAME OUT THIS MORNING FOR THE INFORMATIONAL PICKET IN FRONT OF 2315 SALEM RD IN CONYERS! YOUR EFFORTS DO NOT GO UNNOTICED BY THE COMPANY!!

August 12, 2019

The Utility Operations bargaining team met with the company on Friday, August 9, 2019, to continue bargaining a fair contract. The company gave us a package proposal that the team is currently looking over. At first glance, I can tell you it is not something that we can accept and bring back to the members. We will review the package and make counter proposals that benefit our members.

Brothers & Sisters,

 The contracts, which cover over 22,000 members at AT&T Southeast, Utility Operations, & AT&T Southeast Billing have expired, with many critical issues including; job security, wages, healthcare, and others yet to be resolved. Our bargaining team has made significant progress on several issues that are important to our membership and we believe that reaching an overall tentative agreement is possible.

The company has presented its first wage package, and it is not up to par.  Your bargaining team is preparing counters, so that we can position ourselves closer to an overall agreement.  If you do not know who your local’s strike captain is, reach out to the local and find out.  Remember, the contract extension expires Saturday at midnight. Make sure you are prepared.  Mobilize, Mobilize, Mobilize.

Over the last two days, the bargaining team has continued to work diligently to piece together the remaining open issues and reach a tentative agreement.  With the contract extended to Saturday, the company seems to be willing to make an effort to reach an agreement.  Of course, it remains to be seen whether they will move enough.  Many major parts of the puzzle like wages, benefits, and job security are still being discussed. Continue your mobilization efforts, they are noticed.

Brothers and Sisters,

Early this morning the Utility Operations bargaining team met with the company to discuss the issues that were still on the table. We had a lengthy and in depth dialogue around our issues, and why they are imperative to our members.

In addition to wages and benefits, our members need job security, better working conditions and a better quality of life. We will not stop until our demands are met.
