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

CWA D4 AT&T Midwest Tentative Agreement Detailed Summary 05/20/2015


AT&T Midwest Bargaining Report - Tentative Agreement Reached

The District 4 Midwest bargaining team was able to reach a tentative agreement covering both Core wireline and COS with AT&T Midwest today. The bargaining team is currently working to finalize terms that will be presented to Midwest CWA members for formal approval and ratification.

The team was able to negotiate a three year agreement which includes general wage increases, new healthcare options, and increases to ou...r pensions. Additionally, the bargaining team protected and improved our job security language and made improvements to provisions within the appendixes including wage adjustments.

The bargaining team would like to thank the leaders of every local and each member for the amazing amount of support they provided during this round of negotiations which started on March 4th.

A detailed report will follow at a later date, as the team prepares for a soon to be scheduled contract explanation meeting with Local Presidents.


AT&T Midwest Bargaining Report

Progress continued through the weekend and the bargaining team is comfortable with how things are moving and where they are at. We expect it to continue on through the day with hopes to reach an agreement in the near future....

There is no doubt that the mobilization efforts our locals and members have done certainly had a positive effect during this round of negotiations. The team appreciates everyone's efforts, but at this time, the team would ask that locals refrain from any mobilization beyond normal activities. There is a time when escalations may help you move forward, but at this time it could put in jeopardy the progress made in the past 72 hrs.

The team would appreciate your cooperation and patience in this matter and would not make this request unless we were not confident this was the best approach at this time.

More information will follow.

In Solidarity,
The Bargaining Team
