Important Announcements
Now that SBC has merged with AT&T and changed their name to at&t, there is a lot of confusion on information posted on this web site. Going forward with the new at&t's terminology, we will now be referring to pre-merger SBC employees as "Legacy-S" and the pre-merger AT&T employees as "Legacy-T"

Over the last few days, the Union met with the company to attempt to find a path towards an agreement that included assurances that there was a way to move additional work to the Midwest bargaining unit. Our ask is simple, we need a commitment from AT&T that they will work with CWA to bring work into this bargaining unit. There appeared to be some positive movement in the last few days, but there was no additional progress today.

I wanted to touch base on recent events reaching our center. As you know members across the five-state region protested LR's continued engagement of members bypassing the bargaining team they elected to represent them. Notwithstanding the law dispute itself, most members are not trained and experienced in follow-up / analytical questions regarding attractive data. Imagine if you had children or seniors living in your household and your city officials waited for you to go to work to engage them about a controversial tax millage and promised them new playgrounds and bingo halls.

For a second day CWA members across the Mid West are walking in protest to AT&T?s continued refusal to bargain in good faith with our elected bargaining committee. CWA Dist 4, has appealed this issue to the NLRB asking for a swift decision.

AT&T's so-called "final" proposal is a desperate attempt by AT&T to avoid reaching an agreement that would keep good, family-supporting jobs in our communities. Instead of continuing our agreed-upon negotiation process, they have violated the National Labor Relations Act by sending their misleading summary directly to CWA members and by failing to bargain in good faith.

This afternoon the Company presented the Union with a 5th comprehensive package proposal that they termed as ?final?. The Company has moved towards the Union?s direction on some issues, but it doesn?t appear that we are where we need to be yet.
As usual, the email the Company sent out this afternoon highlights some positives in their proposal, but leaves out the many diminishments and retrogressive proposals that CWA members will not accept.

At this time, CWA District 4 and AT&T have not reached a new agreement.

We will be working without a contract effective at 12:00 AM CDT, Sunday, April 15th.

We are still FAR from resolving a multitude of issues that must be addressed before a tentative agreement can be presented.

The CWA team is currently headed back to meet with the Company at this time.

Its time for mobilization activities to really heat up!!

No Contract No Peace!

In Solidarity,

Your CWA District 4 Bargaining Team
