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"

I wanted to touch base on recent events reaching our center.

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

Dear Friends

This is a reminder. This year Christmas Eve this year is on a Sunday. Because Christmas day is on Monday our Union and the company have agreed to treat it as an additional Floating Holiday to be scheduled and taken between Dec 26, 2017 and the last Sunday in June 2018.
