Brothers & Sisters,
I am pleased to announce that we have reached tentative agreements with AT&T Southeast, Utility Operations, & AT&T Billing. I would like to congratulate our bargaining team for their success at the bargaining table. As you know, this round of negotiations was very challenging and it took all of you standing together in unity, on picket lines across the District to force the company to actually bargain with us.
Please see the attached bargaining highlights. Tomorrow we will be sending out additional details on the tentative agreements. In summary, this agreement will provide us a five (5) year contract, a 13.25% wage increase, increased job security for Core employees, improvements to monitoring language for call center employees, seniority protections and other upgrades for Wire Technicians.
Once again, I would like to thank all of you for what you have sacrificed and for making it possible for us to reach an agreement. I have never been more proud of being a CWA member than I have been over these last few days.
CWA District 3 Vice President
