AT&T Legacy T Bargaining Report #32

The Company accepted our demand that our Monitoring language continues unchanged.  At the beginning of bargaining, the Company made a big issue of wanting to be able to “coach” (and discipline) individuals for what is heard during process monitoring and they also wanted to take away the right of our call center workers to demand side-by-side monitoring.  This would tremendously add to the stress (and discipline) of our members.  Today we preserved our original language.

From there it went downhill.  While the Company changed some of the specifics of their benefits proposal, the results were the same.  Our members would be paying a lot more than they pay now.  The Company then rejected ALL our proposals on wages, pensions, JOG, the watermarks, absence and the wage supplement for those making under $50,000.

In addition to the mobilizing going on in many workplaces, this Friday many of our Locals are attending the AT&T Shareholders Meeting in Spokane, Washington.  They will tell the top management of AT&T, the Board members, the Press and every Shareholder who attends how AT&T is treating its employees. If those in Dallas who are controlling this bargaining haven’t gotten the message yet, maybe that will push them a step closer to fairness.

You Bargaining Team,
