AT$T Bargaining began yesterday and already we have been told that we make too much money and New Hires don’t “really” want a Pension….REALLY????
Read on for the rest of Bargaining Update:
We will not take RETROGRESSIVE Bargaining. Period.
CWA Local 6350 recently started the Union Member of the Month. We want to show our appreciation for our members who has the unions back and supports us!! Debbie Flynn consistently shows that she is a true union member through and through and we appreciate her as an outstanding member. CWA Local 6350 President Sid Horn and EVP Ron Gompers presented Debbie with a certificate of our appreciation and a small gift to show how much we need members like her! Rock on Debbie!!
CWA Bargaining kicked off today, one month from the contract expiration with AT$T. We are ready to go to the mat and do whatever it takes for a fair and equitable contract. The recent Fairpoint Strike just shows what we can do with union solidarity and willing to go ONE DAY LONGER. We are better prepared for this fight, more so than in previous years. Please understand that your participation in our Mobilization activities makes us strong and lets our bargaining committee know that you are committed to keeping your benefits and wages and NO RETROGRESSIVE BARGAINING. THIS IS YOUR CONTRACT, NOT CWA’S. LET DO THIS!!!
UNION STRONG!!! ONE DAY LONGER!! SOLIDARITY FOREVER!!
CWA Local 6350 Union Brothers and Sisters,
Below is the latest VTP information that was released today. AT&T continues to dimish our bargaining unit. We continue to be inundated with work but the Company continues to downsize us. We need to be ever vigilant about WHO is doing our work and where it is going. There can be no SURPLUS declarations until April 2013 per our contract. Again AT&T continues to increase their profits on the backs of it’s workforce, working to undermine the US economy by off shoring and contracting out good Union American jobs. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Fellow Union Brothers and Sisters,
Aug 17, 2012
The votes have been counted, and the Legacy T contract was ratified by 67.6%. The AT&T Puerto Rico Contract was ratified by 90%. As soon as we have information on the date you will receive your retroactive pay, we will get it out to you.
Our Bargaining Teams want to thank you for all your support during these difficult months; particularly those Locals that worked so hard on their mobilization efforts.
Mobilization isn’t just for Contract time. In addition to supporting our brothers and sisters in Districts 1, 9 and 3, (whose vote on their TA is not complete,) and Verizon and the upcoming Mobility, District 6 Contracts, it is a powerful weapon to deal with ongoing issues we are sure to have with AT&T.
