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 28, 2019

It has been a slow day today at the bargaining table.  Throughout the bargaining process, many issues have been discussed.  Yesterday we bargained through the night and concluded this morning around 4:00 A.M.  After a few hours of sleep, our bargaining team has spent the day reviewing the various sections of the benefits package.  We understand the importance of distributing the details as soon as possible but we need to ensure that all of the issues discussed are properly documented.

Today we were able to have some constructive dialogue with AT&T. Yesterday we all worked late into the night and we are prepared to settle negotiations. We plan to meet with the company again this evening. If the company is serious, we could settle the contract tonight. We will find out later tonight if they are able to make a deal or not. We cannot express how much we appreciate all that has taken place across the District. Today, we all understand the truth in the words to that old familiar chant “We are the Union”.

In Unity,

Today the Union and the Company met to discuss the various bargaining proposals on both sides.  Discussions are intense but there is a possibility that negotiations could move forward.  We are inspired by the solidarity across the District.  You have proven to the world that you will fight back against the Company's unlawful acts, and rest assured we will not stop fighting for you.  Our bargaining team will be working late tonight.  It is our desire to reach an agreement and attain the contract that our members deserve.

Despite AT&T’s misleading propaganda, the last bargaining session with the company took place on Tuesday August 20th.  There have been no further meetings with AT&T’s full bargaining committee because the company failed to send someone to the bargaining table who has the authority to make decisions and reach an agreement.

At CWA, our number one priority is jobs – standing up for our members and creating good jobs for all. Americans want good quality jobs and are willing to work hard to provide for their families. The time is now for each of us to take strong action to gain the respect that we deserve at AT&T and to reaffirm the American dream for the next generation.

Once again, there is no progress to report at the bargaining table today.  Negotiations seem to be at a stand still due to the company's lack of authority to bargain over any of the issues brought to the table by our members.  The phones at the District 3 Office have not stop ringing today.  Members are calling to say that they want a new contract, they've have had enough of AT&T, and are asking what they can do to help.  

 

We are all in this together.  Please ensure that you are in communication with the leadership of your Local.
