Today we were able to have some constructive dialogue with AT&T. Yesterday we all worked late into the night and we are prepared to settle negotiations.

CWA AT&T Southeast Bargaining Report #44

Today, CWA members notified the District 3 Office of the propaganda that AT&T distributed to employees. This propaganda is unfortunately in lockstep with the company's behavior during negotiations, as it isn't the truth. Similarly, during bargaining AT&T's lead negotiator requested to meet with District 3 leadership, claiming that the company, in an effort to reach an agreement, would be moving our direction on more than half of the twelve (12) priority issues brought to the table.

CWA/AT&T SOUTHEAST BARGAINING REPORT #43

Once again, there is no progress to report at the bargaining table today. Negotiations seem to be at a stand still due to the company's lack of authority to bargain over any of the issues brought to the table by our members. The phones at the District 3 Office have not stop ringing today. Members are calling to say that they want a new contract, they've have had enough of AT&T, and are asking what they can do to help.

Unfortunately, due to the company’s lack of authority at the bargaining table, there is no progress to report. Union membership gives us strength in numbers. We all rely upon one another. The basic right to form and join a Union gives us more power than if we tried to negotiate as individuals.

CWA/AT&T SE Bargaining Report #41

As the company continues to play games, our Union grows stronger every day. Because of the way they are treated at work by management, CWA members across District 3 were already frustrated with the company before negotiations even began. This frustration continues to grow every day and our members have had enough of AT&T's behavior.
