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"

Sisters and Brothers,

I hope that all of you and your families are doing well and staying safe.

As you are all aware, recently a communication was sent by the Company to all employees (both bargained for and non-bargained for) which was intended to be an informative overview of the new direction(s) AT&T, and its various operations, are heading in. The reality is the message presents cause for serious concern for our members and our Union. As these changes develop, we are continuing to engage the leadership of AT&T, at all levels, to determine the impact they will have on our members and will share with you the information that is available, when it is available.

Sisters and Brothers,

We are certainly living in unprecedented times. I hope each of you are doing well, staying healthy, and being safe.

I know that during events like this, as union leaders we find ourselves busier than ever in an effort to support our members' needs. All too often, we forget to take care of ourselves and those around us doing this work.

Let's get one thing straight...

Employers and Corporations did not feel generous and decide to give you two days off every week to have a social/personal life. (We now call them weekends). Corporations did not just feel like being nice one day and give their employees paid vacations. CEOs didn't get together in a board room and say "Let's give our employees more rights at work" or "Maybe there should be laws to limit our power over an employee".
