Welcome to CWA,
Beginning work for AT&T is a milestone for many of us, creating opportunities that will enhance and secure our careers for many years to come. As you are well aware, working for AT&T will provide you and your families with a comfortable income and a good benefit package. What you may not be aware of is that these benefits were negotiated between the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and AT&T for not only you, but every existing non-management employee in the company.
AT&T recognizes CWA as being the sole bargaining agent for non-management employees. This means everything from your salary and benefits, to how many weeks of vacation you receive, to the educational opportunities, to your pensions, are a direct result of negotiations between CWA and AT&T. We are a labor organization across the nine state AT&T region, and we encompass nearly one million members nationwide!
For 60 years CWA has been a democratic Union and we highly encourage membership participation. Belonging to CWA is vital to the continuation of the pay and many benefits you receive from the company.
The chapter (or Local) here in Greensboro is CWA Local 3607. We represent every department of AT&T here in Greensboro. If you have any questions about your working conditions that you don’t feel comfortable asking your manager about, please contact your job steward or union Area Vice President on your next break and they’ll be happy to help! Your issue will be kept in the strictest of confidence. If you don’t know who your union rep is. Simply ask your manager or co-worker. Someone will direct you to them.
Remember we are all volunteers in CWA, so anything you can do to help is highly encouraged and appreciated! Your union hall is located on 129 Industrial Ave, Greensboro NC 27406. Our meetings are on the first Tuesday of every month starting at 6:00 PM and we can easily be reached by dialing 336-230-1211.
Again, welcome to the CWA family
