Announcements : Contracts Covering 14,000 Workers at AT&T Midwest and Legacy Expire
Posted by Dave Skotarczyk on 2018/4/15 6:42:14 (117 reads)

Workers will stay on the job as negotiations continue.

The 14,000 workers at AT&T Midwest and AT&T Legacy T, members of the Communications Workers of America, will continue working even though their contracts have expired. The AT&T Midwest agreement expired at 11:59 pm CT on Saturday. The AT&T Legacy T contract expired at 11:59 ET on Saturday.

Our members remember the big promises that AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson made if the corporate tax cut bill passed, and now we?re holding AT&T to those promises,? said CWA District 4 Vice President Linda L. Hinton. ?Our bargaining team is committed to negotiating a fair contract that keeps good family-supporting jobs with affordable health care and a secure retirement in our communities. AT&T should not underestimate CWA members. They are ready to do whatever it takes to get a fair contract with AT&T Midwest, including going on strike if we aren't able to make progress at the bargaining table.?

?The concessions that AT&T is demanding are insulting,? Vice President of Telecommunications & Technologies Lisa Bolton said. ?AT&T made nearly $30 billion in profits last year, and is reaping major benefits from the passage of the corporate tax cut bill. They can afford to keep good family-supporting jobs in our communities instead of laying off workers and sending their work to low-wage contractors. Our members have overwhelmingly authorized a strike if necessary, and that is still an option.?

The AT&T Midwest contract covers workers in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, while the Legacy T contract covers workers nationwide.
