CWA 4008

It was great to see the CWA presence at the AT$T shareholders meeting this morning.  The large crowd from across the nation was raucous and energized!  Hopefully, AT$T heard our members loud and clear today.


In addition, the mobilization activities across District 4 today were impressive as well!  The number of locations and scores of members participating was inspiring to the bargaining committee.  Thank you!

Today, the Union rejected the Company’s second comprehensive package proposal.

The Committee continued to dissect the Company’s proposals and craft Union counter proposals this morning.

Today the Union committee rejected the Company’s disappointing package proposal, in totality, which was presented to the Union last week.

We continued work on crafting improvements to the Appendices and Article 26 and passed proposals that reflect those improvements this evening.

The Company had no proposals for the Union today.

With the committee’s frustrations already at a high level, only to be exacerbated by the company’s package proposal that set all our previous negotiation sessions back to practically March 6th, the union committee decided to take a step away from the table for a few days.  Hopefully, by the time we return to the table, the Company will start acting like they really do want to reach an agreement that is fair to our deserving members. 

Please keep up the mobilization activities.

Yesterday morning the Appendix G subcommittee met to continue discussing ways to improve the working conditions of the members covered under that appendix.

The full committee worked the rest of the day analyzing and working on counters to the company’s package proposal from April 19th.

Bargaining resumed this morning and resulted in tentative agreements being reached on Appendix A4 (Regional Joint Benefits Forum), Appendix A1 (Motor Vehicle Usage Program), Appendix A34 (Payment in Lieu of Vacation) and a letter regarding treatment of health care taxes.
