After eight weeks, AT&T finally relented and called the committees for AT&T Midwest and Legacy T back to the bargaining table. Unfortunately, the company made no improvement to their offer on jobs or employment security.
AT&T needs to invest in CWA members, their employees, and in the communities they serve. A widely-shared article in The Guardian this week highlighted AT&T’s continued offshoring and outsourcing despite the company’s huge tax windfall and record profits.
The CWA bargaining committees are urging members to continue to mobilize by using political pressure, media, and community involvement to tell the company that they must bargain fair contracts for all of our members.
