CWA / AT&T 2017 “Orange” Contract Bargaining
March 2, 2017 – Bargaining Report #21
Bargaining resumed today, and the Company continued their appalling behavior. The Bargaining team reiterated that our members need better benefits, wages, working conditions and job security. We pointed out that our concerns are more important than ever because the Company, despite their huge profits, still wants to outsource and downsize good union jobs. The Bargaining Team told them we will continue bargaining as long as it takes to get the contract you deserve.
Other than a brief demonstration of the Cricket commission plan, the Company had no proposals for the Union today and did not respond to any of the multiple proposals we passed yesterday. Bargaining will resume tomorrow. We need all our members unified and mobilized to let the company know we will not accept less than we deserve!!
Stay strong Sisters and Brothers!!
