2015 CWA Local 4340 AT&T Midwest & Legacy T Bargaining Contract Expiration/DFR From link/Strike Picket Roster link

We are coming close to the AT&T contract expirations dates and we need to prepare!  The company has refused to bargain with CWA District 4 on almost every issue we bring to the table. Our retired and current members have helped build this company to where it stands today as one of the most profitable communication companies in the world.  Our members deserve good wages, benefits and retirements! We earned them!

If you have not filled out your DFR- Striker Certification Form Click Here, or please see a Union Steward as soon as possible.  Please fill out the form and fax it to the hall at 216-635-4350. This form needs to be received at the union hall before we can issue any strike duty payments to our members.

Strike Duty rosters have been distributed and posted on the Union bulletin boards, you can also Click Here to see a copy of the roster.  Please check the roster and if you don’t see your name, contact your Picket Chief or call the hall at 216-635-4340 for your picket duty assignments.  In order to receive strike pay you must picket 8 hours a week.  There will be sign in sheets at the picket locations, please make sure you sign in to receive strike duty payments. Strike duty payments are as follows:

Commencing on the fifteenth (15th) day of a strike, $200.00 per striker per week will be provided (subject to availability of funds) for use by the Local for strikers' assistance. Commencing on the twenty-ninth day of a strike, $300.00 per striker per week will be provided (subject to availability of funds) for use by the Local for strikers’ assistance.

Payments to Locals will end on the seventh day following the conclusion of the strike. In the event the last week of a strike is not a full week, the payments to the Locals shall be prorated.

In the case of a strike health care benefits will continue through the end of that month, example; if a strike was called on April 12, 2015, you will be covered under AT&T benefits until April 30.  We realize that some of our members may have continuing, chronic and possibly emergency medical treatment that is necessary even during a strike.
