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"

As previously reported, the CWA bargaining committee has passed numerous proposals and counter proposals across the bargaining table relative to AT&T's plans to implement a rigid COVID-19 Vaccination Policy. The ball remains in the company's court as the Union committee continues to await AT&T's response to our most recent bargaining demands. At this time, there is nothing new to report.

The CWA bargaining committee will remain on standby awaiting a response from the Company. We will distribute additional updates once there is new information to report.

On September 17, 2021, the parties continued meetings at the bargaining table. The CWA bargaining committee passed modified bargaining demands across the table. The company's committee had several questions about the Union's efforts to protect its membership from the company's hardline stance on the implementation of their COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.

Our Union bargaining committee answered the company's questions and made it clear that certain protections must be in place for our membership. As it stands today, our committee is on standby awaiting a response from AT&T. As additional information becomes available, updates will be distributed.

Yesterday morning, the CWA Bargaining Committee worked on formulating proposals to present to AT&T representatives relative to the Company's proposed implementation of a COVID-19 Vaccination Policy. During the afternoon, parties reconvened negotiations on the matter. During the session, the Union passed twelve proposals to the AT&T committee. After explaining each proposal and answering the Company's initial questions about them, the bargaining session adjourned to allow the Company time to further review and consider the Union's proposals.

The parties agreed to meet again today. Future updates will be forthcoming as negotiations continue.

Today, the CWA bargaining committee met with AT&T and rejected the company's proposed mandatory vaccination policy for Union-represented employees. Our committee further emphasized that CWA supports voluntary vaccination programs and opposes mandatory vaccination as a condition of employment. Our committee then introduced a counter proposal which provides incentives to employees who volunteer to be vaccinated, as well as those who have already been vaccinated. The Union's counter proposal also includes a testing option for employees who choose not to be vaccinated.
