AT&T Bargaining Bulletin #80

May 19, 2017

Hold AT&T to its word

We’ve had enough. In just a few minutes thousands of AT&T wireline, wireless and DIRECTV workers will begin a three day strike, from Friday 12:00 noon PT until 12:01 am PT Monday morning. This major demonstration will occur in 36 states across the country.  Last year, AT&T made $18 billion in profit. They’ve got more than enough to go around without having to offshore our jobs and threaten our benefits.

Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s CEO, recently said that, “What AT&T really needs is a good, prosperous, growing middle class.”

We couldn’t agree more. AT&T can do its part by negotiating a fair contract with its employees. Join our strike and sign our petition to hold the company to its word.

This show of strength is necessary because AT&T hasn’t made serious progress in our contract negotiations. Our bargaining teams have been working around the clock for a fair deal, but we need to increase the pressure so the company recognizes that we won’t take anything less than what’s fair.

This petition is important, every signature counts. The more support we get, the stronger our position at the bargaining table. Stay tuned for more updates. Sign the Petition

In Solidarity,

CWA District 9

All official negotiation and mobilization information will be delivered on the District 9 website. (www.district9.cwa-union.org), Local Websites and email lists.

CWA ,

It was an incredible first day on strike at AT&T. Hundreds of our friends, family and allies from the labor movement and our communities joined us on the picket line. We SHUT DOWN stores across the country – more than we even expected. It was a truly historic day and everyone did an incredible job.

We made the news nationwide – they wrote about us in The New York Times, The LA Times, Wall Street Journal, Buzzfeed and many more including local TV, radio, and newspapers around the country.

Make sure you’re following us on Facebook and Twitter to see all the photos, videos, and messages of solidarity coming in from your CWA brothers and sisters and our supporters.

WATCH and SHARE the video from the first day. (Original music in the video was made by a proud CWA Local 1101 member!)

Keep those picket lines strong! The company is feeling the pressure.

See you on the picket line tomorrow. ✊
