Bonus is nice. Job Security, even better!

To CWA Members:

 AT&T has announced a $1000 bonus to all employees because of the GOP tax plan. Our reply:  

 You can’t buy our approval.

 The bonus you are touting is the blood money from those you announced termination to 10 days before Christmas. The mass emails you send to the hard working employees of this Company thanking them for their dedication and sacrifice are a mockery.    No amount of praise will numb the damage done to our Brothers and Sisters as they spend the Holidays desperately trying to plan how they will continue to provide for their families.

 Do the right thing.

Cancel the planned 1st quarter surplus at AT&T.  Take these tax breaks that you are lavishing praise on and use them to train our Members for the work that is to come. Let your words and your actions speak in unison. The 7000 hard hat jobs you promised can start with not sending over 1800 to the unemployment line come January 2018.

Show the nation that these tax cuts truly will benefit the working families of America.  We are waiting for you to do the right thing.

In Solidarity,

CWA State Council of Ohio

 

P.S. This "bonus" is a perfect addition for members to add to their strike funds.
