The bargaining committee met today to continue to go over bargaining demands and prepare for subcommittee meetings with the company tomorrow. The Article 26 Subcommittee and Appendix G/COS subcommittee met this morning and afternoon to continue to examine and analyze data to prepare for the coming week.

The committee would like to thank Locals 4900 and 4322 for the care packages that arrived this week. They will certainly help us make it through the coming weeks of discussions!

CWA/AT&T Midwest Bargaining Resolution


 As CWA prepares to enter negotiations with AT&T/Midwest Region over the contract that expires on April 14, 2018, we must demand AT&T addresses our members’ key issues.  Will AT&T work with CWA and its members as it develops strategies to meet a changing competitive and technological environment or will it continue to take the low road of layoffs and outsourcing?

All through negotiations, we will have regular bargaining reports that will be posted on our website:  Information will also be communicated via email blasts, text messages and on a new Facebook page created for bargaining.

To receive text messages, text the word Midwest to 69866.
