CWA-AT&T Orange Mobility-Bargaining Report #23

May 27, 2022

Five years ago, on Memorial Day Weekend, CWA workers covered under the Orange Contract had recently returned from their historic strike at AT&T Mobility.  The strike was unprecedented and sent a message of solidarity and strength to the Company.  Building on that strength, and the current mobilization, we are close to a fair and equitable contract.  It has been a long and hard process, and we know it’s been frustrating at times for you, but all the gains we are making at the bargaining table are due to your efforts.  Keep up the fight a little longer and we will get what you deserve from this company.  Let AT&T know that even though we are close, you will fight until the end.  We continue to work under the terms and conditions of the previous contract, while either side can terminate this agreement with 72-hours notice, we do not foresee such events taking place.

Please keep all of the military members who have died, and their families, in your thoughts throughout this Memorial Day Weekend. We wish you all a safe and healthy weekend, and we will update you again next week.  Stay Mobilized and Stay United!

 
 
WE will prevail—ONE DAY LONGER, ONE DAY STRONGER!!

CWA-AT&T Orange Mobility-Bargaining Report #22
May 20, 2022

The Orange Bargaining Committee continues to meet with the Company. As previously reported, we are making progress and have tentative agreements on many important issues. There are only a few issues left to reach an agreement, but they are important issues. We need all of you to keep up the fight and put pressure on AT&T. It’s been 5 years since so many of you had enough and walked out on the company in a historic strike at Mobility. The memory of that strike and continued mobilization throughout this bargaining process has sent a clear message to the Company. Without all of your efforts, we would have no leverage at the bargaining table.

The Union and Company have agreed to keep the terms of the existing contract in place while we continue to bargain. Either side has the right to end the agreement with a 72-hour notice. We are very close to a fair and equitable contract. Stay Mobilized, Stay Informed and Stay
United!

WE will prevail—ONE DAY LONGER, ONE DAY STRONGER!!

CWA-AT&T Orange Mobility-Bargaining Report #21

May 13, 2022

The Orange Bargaining Team continues to meet daily with the Company. We have made progress on most issues important to all groups covered by the Orange Contract. We have spent the last several months of bargaining focused on making improvements to just about every aspect of your work lives, and we believe we are close to securing a contract that will do just that. The Bargaining Team has spent extensive amounts of time on Call Center, Technician, Retail Sales, In Home Sales and Work from Home issues individually as well as focusing on safety, quality of life and economic issues that effect all groups collectively.

Once again, none of the progress we are making would be possible without the continued support and mobilization of the membership. Throughout this long and frustrating process every member that has engaged in mobilization has pushed us closer to a fair contract. Don’t let off the gas just yet, we still need your fight to get us to the finish line! Stay Mobilized and Stay United!

 
 
WE will prevail—ONE DAY LONGER, ONE DAY STRONGER!!

First of all, the Bargaining Team realizes that this process has been a long and sometimes frustrating one for all of you. As we have stated many times, we are going to bargain as long as it takes to get a contract that you have earned and deserve. We are pleased to report that we continue to make significant progress at the bargaining table. Some important issues remain, but we are making improvements every day. We thank all of you for the continued support, mobilization and unity that has helped us along the way. As we continue bargaining, we ask that you keep the pressure on the Company through mobilization and any other activities your Local or mobilizers ask of you.
 
The coming days and weeks of this process will be the most important as we nail down the last few crucial issues. Stay Strong and Keep Fighting!!

April 28, 2022
 
As stated in the last few bargaining reports, we continue to make good progress at the bargaining table. It is very clear to the Bargaining Team that this progress is a direct result of the mobilization going on out in the field. In order to get us to a fair and equitable contract, we need every member covered by the Orange Contract to step up mobilization! You are doing a great job, KEEP FIGHTING! There is still plenty of work to be done at the bargaining table, but we are encouraged by the continued progress.
 
We have signed another temporary extension that will expire on May 20, 2022. Please stay in touch with your Local and your mobilizers. Once again, we know that the progress is being made because of your hard work! Stay United, Stay Informed and Stay Mobilized!

CWA-AT&T Orange Mobility-Bargaining Report #18
April 21, 2022
 
Bargaining has continued this week and thanks to the escalated mobilization efforts of our membership, progress is still being made at the table on various key issues.  However, we are still very far apart on many others and have a long way to go in reaching our goal of a fair contract.  It is unacceptable that a corporation that brags about its best first quarter in ten years bring just pennies to the bargaining table.  Your bargaining team has made it crystal clear to the Company that we will accept nothing less than a fair compensation package for our members.  Those first quarter results are a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our membership, and it is long overdue for AT&T to recognize that at this table and stop hoarding its profits.  Your voices need to be heard! If you have not gotten involved in this fight, NOW is the time to do so.  Mobilization efforts are scaling up across the Orange Contract, this Company needs to hear you.  Get Involved!!  Bargaining is scheduled to continue for the remainder of this week.

First and foremost, the Orange Bargaining Team would like to thank every member who has taken place in mobilization activities! The Company hears you loud and clear.  There has been continued progress at the bargaining table, and even though we remain far apart on many issues progress is being made.  The Company has still not come nearly far enough on certain issues, but we see some light at the end of the tunnel.  Your sustained mobilization is the key to getting us over the finish line, and your efforts are making us stronger at the table.  We know with your continued support we will be able to bring you a fair and equitable contract.  It is time for AT&T to get serious and reach into their very deep pockets to give you what you have earned and deserve.  Please keep up the great work, and Keep Fighting!!

CWA / AT&T Orange Mobility-Bargaining Report #16

April 8, 2022
 
Over the last week the Orange Bargaining Committee has continued to meet with the Company. There has been some positive movement in many areas, and we know that movement is because of the hard work all of you are doing mobilizing. The Company can hear you loud and clear demanding a fair contract. While we are happy to report that some progress has been made, we need you to continue to put the pressure on and ramp up mobilization because we are still far apart on the most important issues. AT&T is not just going to give us what we want, we all must continue to fight. The Bargaining Team is committed to bargaining as long as it takes to get a fair contract, and with all of you backing us up through mobilization we know we will be successful.
 
The Union has agreed to another three-week contract extension which expires on April 29, 2022. We are inspired by all of the hard work you are doing! Keep Up the Fight!
 
Stay Informed! Stay Mobilized! Stand United!
 

WE will prevail—ONE DAY LONGER, ONE DAY STRONGER!!

Bargaining Update

AT&T Mobility and DirecTV (Orange)

Just shy of a thousand AT&T Mobility workers joined a town hall call last Wednesday for an update on contract negotiations and strategies for strengthening their power at the bargaining table. The call was also an opportunity for newer members to learn how we have mobilized to bargain strong contracts at AT&T Mobility, such as waging an historic strike in 2017.

CWA District 1 Vice President Dennis Trainor, who coordinates bargaining for the AT&T Mobility Orange contract, kicked off the call saying, “We don't win our great contracts with just the bargaining committee, we win when we have every member mobilizing and participating in every mobilization activity. We have tremendous support within CWA and from the public. But we need to energize all of our Mobility workers and send a clear message to AT&T that we want a fair contract now. AT&T has to know that their employees are ready to stand up and fight back. We did this in 2017…I need all of you to be ready to send the same message to AT&T in 2022.”

CWA President Chris Shelton reiterated by saying, “Mobilize, mobilize, mobilize! And make sure that this company is listening, because whatever we do at the bargaining table doesn't count unless the company knows that the members are behind us.”

CWA District 2-13 Vice President Ed Mooney, CWA District 4 Vice President Linda L. Hinton, CWA District 7 Vice President Susie McAllister, and CWA District 9 Vice President Frank Arce, who represent members covered by the Orange contract, also joined the town hall. During the call, participants asked clarifying questions and expressed their gratitude and support for the bargaining team.

Members covered by the AT&T Mobility and DirecTV Orange contracts continue to hold workplace actions for affordable healthcare, fair wages, and more. AT&T Mobility workers have also been participating in a March Madness action, leafleting at basketball games to inform the public about the contract fight and the differences between authorized retail and union-staffed stores.

CWA and AT&T-Bargaining Report #15

March 28, 2022
 
The Orange Bargaining Committee continues to meet with the Company. The Company still seems to have their head in the sand when it comes to what you need in terms of fair compensation. We have said many times how the Company is trying to shift costs to you in terms of benefits, and now they have offered completely unacceptable wage increases. Workers throughout this country have been affected by inflation and increasing health care costs, but AT&T continues to have record profits because of the hard work that you do. Wages are rising all over the country, but AT&T would rather offer their employees wages increases that are far from what you deserve. Wages and benefits affect everyone covered by the Orange Contract, and we will continue to fight until we get what is fair.
 
We hope everyone has been participating in mobilization activities and continues to do so moving forward. We need to let the company know we are not going anywhere until we get what you deserve. Please stay in touch with your local for the latest mobilization activities.
 
Stay Mobilized! Stay Informed!
WE will prevail—ONE DAY LONGER, ONE DAY STRONGER!!

Bargaining Update

AT&T Mobility and DirecTV (Orange)

The AT&T Mobility Orange bargaining team reached agreement on a second three-week extension to continue negotiations for a fair contract. While there has been some progress, AT&T has not met CWA’s reasonable demands on healthcare, scheduling, compensation, and more. Notably, the company continues to offer proposals that could lead to skyrocketing health care costs with a devastating economic impact for people who get sick and need benefits the most.

At DirecTV, bargaining continues under a 72-hour rolling contract extension as members at call centers in Eden Prairie, Minn.; Huntington, W.Va.; and Englewood, Colo., mobilize to show the company that they won’t back down.

Orange Bargaining
AT&T Mobility and DirecTV workers are mobilizing to strengthen their power at the bargaining table and improve their working conditions. Over the last few weeks, members have participated in workplace actions, rallies, and online actions to demand fair contracts.

-Continue passing out CWA swag- encourage members to wear swag every day during bargaining to show unity; then continue to show support on Thursdays

 

-Continue to encourage all mobility members to complete surveys and keep track of who has completed each one – Bargaining survey, I’m All In, Valentines Card and any going forward
