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!!

Our bargaining team has been working hard to reach a tentative agreement and settle contract negotiations.  At one time, it seemed that AT&T also wanted to reach an agreement.  Unfortunately, AT&T's antics over the last two days have sent a clear message that the company has little interest in reaching a timely agreement with CWA that will improve the standard of living for our members.

Your bargaining team is continuing to narrow the gap on work rules, through package bargaining and tough negotiations. The team still has some major hurdles to overcome on wages and benefits.  The company continues to use 'funny' math when costing our requests.  As we work without a contract, remember to work to the rule. Be prepared. 

Mobilize, Mobilize, Mobilize.

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.
