CWA bargaining teams have reached tentative agreements in negotiations with AT&T Southeast, AT&T Utility Operations, and BellSouth Billing on contracts covering a total of 28,000 workers. Details are being provided to CWA members for ratification votes.
The new contracts will provide an improvement in wages, pension safeguards, improvements in job security, a better work/home life balance, and many other gains resulting in real economic improvement for workers.
Negotiations with AT&T Southeast on contracts covering 28,000 workers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee had been ongoing since the contracts expired on August 8. The members have worked without a contract since.
CWA represents 700,000 workers in telecommunications, media, airlines, public service and manufacturing.
