A conference call was held with the Premise Tech Bargaining Team and Alternates on Tuesday, August 11, 2011. We reviewed the lengthy information request which encompasses information from all Premise Tech Units throughout ATT. Although we are still waiting for the requested information, we started developing a strategy to get us to a contract. This information, with the help of CWA’s research team in Washington, DC will paint a very different picture then the one the Company wants us to believe.
After having spoken to the CWA Bargaining Chairs from around the Country, we believe the Company cannot substantiate its cost model comparison between District 3 and other Regions. Hopefully this will stop the Company from dismissing our Bargaining Demands as simply not cost effective.
Bargaining remains in recess while we insist on getting the information relevant and necessary to proceed.
