Your bargaining team met with the company today. The company is intent on more than doubling healthcare costs, segregating employees effectively bargaining away the core contract and offering no quota relief in the sales environment. This corporation has also made it clear that they are not interested in improving safety procedures and work rules that will help to increase family time for employees. AT&T posted adjusted revenues of over $131 Billion in 2014 and has yet to propose any wage increase, leaving employees to incur a substantial net loss.
The company had the audacity to say we weren’t serious about bargaining or getting a contract because we will not surrender to their quixotic demands. If you look at the facts objectively, it is simple to understand who is not serious. Make sure your Local has your current contact information.
Special thanks to Local 3207 for the white out Wednesday T-shirts.
