The Company has not offered any new proposals since the strike. While we are happy to receive some of the data we requested, the Company continues to insist on concessions and offers nothing to get us closer to an agreement. The Union has our demands on the table and we will not back down.
Currently, CWA has filed National Labor Relations Board charges against AT&T regarding: 1. the Company's refusal to provide information relevant to bargaining 2. the Company's refusal to bargain regarding the commission plan 3. threats made by management regarding pointing strikers for attendance 4. surveying workers regarding terms and conditions of bargaining and 5. unilateral change of terms and conditions of bargaining (scheduling in ATS centers).
Along with the NLRB charges, the Union is currently investigating the following situations: changes in schedules for part timers; changes in the goals under the commission plans; soliciting employees to resign from the Union; and threats and retaliation following the strike. Each District will be filing charges associated with the above as needed. We know that this can be a long and frustrating process, but we are committed to fighting as long as it takes to get a fair contract. We need mobilization to continue, please stay in touch with your Local for upcoming mobilization activities.
When we fight, we WIN!
Stay strong Brothers and Sisters!!
