AT&T LEGACY T BARGAINING REPORT #39

Late this afternoon the Bargaining Team received a package proposal from the Company.  We are now reviewing the package to see if it has any merit.  We will be back at the table tomorrow morning with the Company to continue bargaining.

Sisters and Brothers, now is the time to say it loud and proud that you are a CWA member.  Turn up, mobilize and let the Company know we want a fair and just contract.

In Unity,

Your Bargaining Committee

AT&T Legacy T Bargaining Report #38

The Bargaining Team has received numerous questions about the BCB2 Plan. BCB2 stands for Bargained Cash Balance Program 2. This plan was introduced in 2009 for new hires in 2010 and beyond. It was originally designed as a fix to counter the Company discontinuing a defined pension plan for future employees.

 

We met with the Company three separate times today but no progress was made.

 

We are determined to bring in a fair and just contract for our members.

AT&T Legacy T Bargaining Report #37

The Bargaining Team met with the Company this morning. The Company passed proposals on DTV which for the most part were rejections of our previous proposals. The Bargaining Team feels that there were no gains for our DTV members in their proposals. This is an insult to our Brothers and Sisters and we are committed to bargain for fair and just treatment for our members in the DTV Memorandum Of Agreement. TURN IT UP DTV! We need your participation and support.

The Company also passed a proposal on Electronic Monitoring which the Union rejected.

This afternoon the Company passed another Healthcare proposal. Although the Company demonstrated some movement regarding the structure of the Healthcare Plan, there is still a significant increase in the cost to our members in premiums, deductibles, and out of pocket maximums. Their plan also calls for the prescription plan to be integrated with the medical. Additionally, they are standing on their previous proposal to freeze pensions on traditional and cash balance plans and moving those affected employees to the BCB2 plan.

The Union will not accept either of these proposals. We have passed reasonable proposals on Healthcare and our pension proposal is a percentage increase on the Traditional, Cash Balance Plan, and BCB2 Program (with an additional bump up to improve the cash balance dollar amounts).

We will be back at the table tomorrow!

AT&T LEGACY T BARGAINING REPORT #36

The Bargaining Team met with the Company today to receive a proposal to eliminate the funding of the Alliance by September 30, 2019.

This is a clear indication that this Company has no interest in moving this contract forward. Despite our outrage we remain focused and determined to bring in a fair and just contract.

TURN IT UP!

AT&T LEGACY T BARGAINING REPORT #35

This afternoon the Bargaining Team passed a comprehensive proposal on DirecTV.  In addition we passed proposals on Article 21 (Excused Work Days), The Career Support Coorindator Position and CWA-COPE PAC.  We rejected the Company’s proposal on Electronic Monitoring.

The Company rejected our proposals on Relocation Pay in Articles 16 and 24.  The Company also rejected the following Union proposals under Article 43:

  • Minimum Interval Differential
  • Shifted Tour Differential
  • On Call Payments (increase)
  • Certification Incentive Payment Program (increase)
  • Sunday Differential
  • Relief/Meal Period
  • Add Operations Specialist to Certifications

As you can see the list of rejections continues to get longer.  It is clear that the Company has no interest in even incremental improvements for our members.

Let the Company know loud and clear it is time to agree to a fair and just contract.

Remember, the Company’s net profit in 2017 was $29.3 billion. That equates to $80,273,972 a day, including holidays (that’s like you winning the Powerball every day of the year).

AT&T Workers Authorize Strike

With two contracts covering nearly 14,000 workers at AT&T Midwest and AT&T Legacy T set to expire on Saturday, CWA members voted overwhelmingly this week to authorize a strike, if necessary.

CWA District 4 Vice President Linda L. Hinton said, “CWA members are prepared to do whatever it takes to get a fair contract at AT&T Midwest that prioritizes job security, healthcare, and retirement. It is time for AT&T to live up to Randall Stephens’ promises to create thousands of new jobs in the U.S. if the Republican corporate tax bill passed. AT&T’s profits and tax windfalls must turn into jobs and employment security for CWA members.”

Vice President of Telecommunications & Technologies Lisa Bolton said, “Our members are ready to fight for a fair contract at AT&T Legacy T, even if that means going on strike. AT&T must stop farming out our work to the lowest bidder. After the tax bill passed, Stephenson promised the company would create 7,000 good, skilled, high-wage jobs. But at our bargaining tables, management demands second tier jobs with second tier wages and second tier benefits. It is time for AT&T to live up to Stephenson’s promises.”

The AT&T Midwest contract covers workers in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, while the AT&T Legacy T contract covers workers nationwide.


Top: CWA locals from Michigan are showing AT&T Midwest that their members are ready do whatever it takes to get a fair contract.

Bottom: CWA members from Local 7750 in Denver, Colo., are mobilizing for a fair contract at AT&T Legacy T.

  • Article Consolidation and Clean Up

We have to say once again that we appreciate all the mobilization activities that are going on across the country. A big shout out to Local 6350 for the package we received today! The cards of support really were great along with the Lucky Friday the 13th mobilization paraphernalia.

Let the Company know loud and clear it is time to agree to a fair and just contract. Don’t forget to pack up your personal belongings from your desks, cubicles, & trucks by end of business Friday the 13th.
