Although we have not been officially notified by the Company, below is what we believe will be the SSP payout for the 2016 award year. Based on figures posted on the at&t investor relations website, the payout for this award year should be $1500.00 for each eligible member. This includes the total of both the stock appreciation value and dividend rate value and represents the highest payout in several years.
Eligibility requirements and other information on the SSP MOA (A6) in our current collective bargaining agreement can be found on page 116-118.
This will be the first year all eligible members will receive a cash payout instead of the HRA contribution.
This payment is not paid out of the Company’s good nature. It is a result of hard work by our members who make the Company successful regardless of the ridiculous targets, goals, and discipline issued by many departments, and the collective bargaining agreement we achieved together.
This payout will go to all eligible members in the Core contract, including Appendix F, G, and COS. Below are the calculations we used to arrive at the $1500.00. Again, eligibility requirements and other information on the SSP MOA (A6) in our current collective bargaining agreement can be found on page 116-118.
Typically the payout is last pay period in November.
Diff $8.08 x 150 shares = $1,212
4th Quarter 2015 $.48 x 150 = $72.00
Total = $ 288.00

The Company approached the Union regarding a trial that was conducted in Ohio. The project involved CSS technicians from the IM organization being loaned to GNFO to assist in a Central Office Equipment consolidation.
While I was on vacation the company provided the entire list of CO's I apologize for getting it out a little later then I would have liked to,
I have attached the complete list of CO's that will be conducting the project along with tentative dates for canvass, training and implementation. (keep in mind these dates are tentative and may change)
I believe this to be a great opportunity to provide additional work for CSS & TCS technicians when there are concerns surrounding the low volume of work in the field.

We wanted to share a little information with you about Weingarten Rights. They are rules that apply during investigatory interviews. An investigatory interview occurs when: (1) management questions an employee to obtain information; and (2) the employee has a reasonable belief that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what he or she says. Investigatory interviews relate to such subjects as:
The employee may request union representation before or during the interview.
If the employer denies the request for union representation, and questions the employee, it commits an unfair labor practice and the employee may refuse to answer.
