CWA / AT&T 2017 “Orange” Contract Bargaining
June 15, 2017 – Bargaining Report #48
The Union has spent this week reviewing data received from AT&T as well as all the
information we have received from members highlighting the ongoing issues of
wrongdoing by management. AT&T continues to get caught trying to make illegal
changes to policies, scheduling illegal mandatory meetings and instructing managers to
intimidate employees. The Union, with the help and support of the membership, are
catching these improper activities and responding with grievances, mobilization and
The Company canceled the meetings we had scheduled this week and appears to have
focused their time on making changes in their upper management structure.
We know the slow nature of this round of bargaining is frustrating to some members, but
we will not rush this contract. We will bargain as long as it takes to get a fair and
equitable contract regardless of the stall tactics and attempted intimidation by the
Company. Stay strong, stay mobilized and stay angry. Keep in touch with your Local
for mobilization activities. When we fight, we WIN!
Stay strong Brothers and Sisters!!
