CWA / AT&T 2017 “Orange” Contract Bargaining
May 25, 2017 – Bargaining Report #45
Since returning from the strike, and because of your courage, the company
has been filling many of the open information requests. It took a strike and
Unfair Labor Practice charges to get the information but we are getting it.
However, the company continues its greedy demands and they continue to
spread misinformation about bargaining. The Union will not back down and
we urge you to contact your Local if you are hearing anything that does not
sound correct. If there is any harassment or intimidation going on that
needs to be reported as well.
Mobilization needs to be ramped up to keep the pressure on, and we need
to be prepared to bargain for as long as it takes. Despite the company’s
lies, the strike closed hundreds of stores nationwide, left call centers
unstaffed and critical network tickets not dispatched until Monday. Keep up
the fight, One day longer, one day stronger. When We Fight We Win!!
Stay strong Brothers and Sisters!!
