CWA / AT&T 2017 “Orange” Contract Bargaining

June 22, 2017 – Bargaining Report #49

The Union and Company met today and discussed several issues that have come up

over the last several weeks. The first issue is the Company’s attempt to create nonbargained

sales jobs. These jobs known as Integrated Sales Consultants are being

used to up sell customers right in their homes after online sales or a DTV installation

and a support job called Integrated Sales Support Specialist that is equivalent to our

SSRs. We made it clear to the company that they are doing bargained for work and this

must stop immediately. We are intent on getting job security and jobs for the future. We

also pressured the company to supply the information we requested for small cells and

the first responder network. The Company’s greed is on full display when the

discussions turn to absence. They treat talks about absence with disdain and want to

roll back protections for their employees who get sick. We will continue to fight for fair

benefits that protect you when you and your family are not well.

If you are a part time employee who recently had your hours cut without your approval,

you need to speak to your manager and contact your local if they don’t fix it

immediately. The Company assured us that any cut in hours would be voluntary. And

finally, if your manager sets up a meeting or training outside of your scheduled hours,

your attendance is voluntary. If they tell you otherwise, they are incorrect, and you need

to contact your Local immediately. Stay mobilized, stay unified and stay angry! When

we fight, WE WIN!

Stay strong Brothers and Sisters!!

In Solidarity,
