CWA / AT&T 2017 “Orange” Contract Bargaining
April 18, 2017 – Bargaining Report #37
Two months into bargaining and more than a month after contract
expiration, the Company shows no desire to bargain a fair and equitable
contract for their employees. The Union spent the day going over all
proposals and demanding the Company addresses the concerns of our
members. The Company continues to insist on more costly benefits and 5
sick days for new hires while also refusing to negotiate fair wage increases,
bargain a fair commission plan, discuss job security improvements or
address any of the critical issues for current employees.
The Union is here to bargain a fair contract and will fight as long as it takes.
We will not back off the demands the membership told us were most
important to them. We know this is a long, frustrating process, but we need
mobilization to escalate and send a clear message that we are united.
Together we will win!
Stay strong Brothers and Sisters!!
