CWA / AT&T 2017 “Orange” Contract Bargaining
March 6, 2017 – Bargaining Report #24
Bargaining resumed today and once again the dialogue was productive.
We are still very far apart, but we continue to move forward. The Union
passed a counter proposal strengthening the Force Adjustment language
and increasing severance pay. We also made it crystal clear to the
Company that we expect a fair benefits package that treats current
employees and new hires the same. The Company passed a counter
proposal for our Letter of Agreement 1- Personnel Files proposal that
addresses some of the Union’s concerns but it still needs work.
The Bargaining Team is encouraged by the movement that has occurred
over the last several days. However, mobilization is critical to show the
Company that we are committed to getting a fair and equitable contract.
Stay Strong Sisters and Brothers!!
