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"

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

Brothers and Sisters,

The results of the Strike Authorization Vote are as follows:
Yes: 91%
No: 9%

This sends a clear message to the Company that our members are ready to do whatever it takes to get a fair and just contract.
Thank you for your assistance in this important matter.
In Unity,
