AT&T Midwest Contract Ratified

For Immediate Release

CWA/AT&T Midwest ratification results

51.6% Yes, 48.4% No, with 56.8% return

With a majority of eligible voters participating, members that work for AT&T Midwest Core and Global COS voted in favor of ratifying the tentative agreements reached on May 13, 2015 with AT&T. The vote count was conducted by 36 members from 13 different locals across the District.

"Although it was a close vote, it shows the continued appreciation our members have for the work of our bargaining committee," stated District 4 Vice President Linda Hinton. "In these tough times, our committee was able to get a contract that enhanced both our employment security and our standard of living."

The contractual wage increases are retroactive to April 12, 2015, and the benefit changes do not take effect until January 1, 2016. We don't know yet the exact date when the raises will be reflected in paychecks, but expect it within weeks, and the retroactive pay a few weeks following that. As soon as we have a certain date, we will advise Local Presidents.

In Solidarity,

Linda L. Hinton
Vice President
CWA District 4
