CWA/AT&T 2017 Orange Contract Bargaining Report #36

CWA / AT&T 2017 “Orange” Contract Bargaining


April 13, 2017 – Bargaining Report #36


As Bargaining continues, it is clear the company is standing behind their greedy demands, and they have no intention of compensating the employees that built the company. The company is standing firm on exorbitant medical costs, reduced sick time and unfair scheduling practices. It is imperative that you have some flexibility when using your bargained for time off to care for unexpected life events.


Many issues were discussed today, and we spent significant time focusing on call center issues including scheduling and monitoring. The CWA Bargaining Team is determined to improve the daily work lives for our members in the call centers and make sure that any monitoring will be done fairly. We also focused on full time benefits for part time workers since the company is hiring so many part timers in the retail stores. Job security for all groups remains a priority as well. We remain far apart, but we will bargain as long as it takes to get a fair contract. Mobilization remains a key to our strength at the table and together we will win!


Stay strong Brothers and Sisters!!
