CWA BARGAINERS are going home!! We are not refusing to bargain with the company, but WE WILL NOT continue to bargain with the PUPPETS FOR DALLAS. It is time to get out of your comfort zone at the local level and the company know, VERY LOUDLY THAT THIS BULLSH** BARGAINING.
It was a beautiful day outside for a picket! Members of CWA Local 6350 came out and helped walk an informational picket to let AT$T know, that under NO circumstances are we happy or complacent with this bargaining. They want us to help them get to 2020….what are they doing for you? Eliminating your Pension, shifting more and more health care costs onto your backs? Wake up PEOPLE…this isn’t about you….it’s about corporate greed and AT$T complete and utter disrespect for you as an employee.
UNITED WE BARGAIN…..DIVIDED WE BEG.
Another day of AT$T bargainers not being able to bargain the contract without asking permission from Mommy and Daddy in Dallas. The only way we are gonna make them take notice is to make it very uncomfortable in public. Get ready to do leafleting to help us tell the world about what greed and outsourcing has done to John Q Public’s personal data within AT$T’s walls.
Bargaining report #32
CWA bargainers held the line and maintained our Monitoring language. We must hold the line on the rest of our issues.
What are you willing to do???
If AT$T thinks we are willing to sit here for months and our members will go back to business as usual they are seriously mistaken.
LET YOUR MANAGER KNOW YOU WANT A FAIR CONTRACT NOW!!!
CWA Local 6350 Members, Officers and Stewards showed up today to support the Show Me $15 Campaign. This campaign is to support raising the wages of Fast Food Workers to living wage of $15. With this increase, Fast Food Workers aren’t gonna get rich, they are going to turn around and purchase goods and services with them. It’s good for the families, it’s good for the economy and it’s good for our committee.

AT$T continues to bring insultingly small improvements to their prior proposals, http://cwa-union.org/news/entry/att_legacy_t_bargaining_report_292 it’s hardly worth talking about. AT$T refuses to talk about any substantive job security, still not ensuring our current watermark, meanwhile the jobs they have outsourced have cost them $25 million dollars in fines from the FCC because of a data breach.
WORKING WITHOUT A CONTRACT MEANS WE CAN STILL WALK AT ANYTIME. PLEASE KEEP UP THE EXPERT MOBILIZATION ON THE BUSINESS FLOOR. IT IS BEING RECORDED AND REPORTED AT A NATIONAL LEVEL.
