CWA has negotiated a special COVID-19 bonus for AT&T Core Workers

CWA has negotiated a special COVID-19 bonus of 20% for *ALL* CWA members in *ALL* titles (inside and outside) who work for both AT&T Core (Core means *all* titles in the West Green wireline contract, including Appendix A and Appendix E) and AT&T Mobility (Mobility means *all* titles in the Orange wireless contract)!

DETAILS: Effective March 25th, the “COVID - 19 AT&T U.S. Cash Award Program” will take effect, and a 20% bonus above the regular hourly base rate of pay will be applied for *all* hours worked, whether worked at your normal work location (in the field, in an office, in a store, or wherever you normally work), or worked from home. The bonus will be included in your regular rate of pay for purposes of calculating overtime rates.

EXAMPLE:

Hourly Wage Rate = $10.00 per hour
20% bonus per hour = $2.00 per hour
Total new base wage = $12.00 per hour

In this example, $12.00 per hour becomes your new Base Wage as it applies to the “COVID - 19 AT&T U.S. Cash Award Program”. Time and one half (1-1/2) would now become $18.00 per hour ($12.00/hour plus $6.00/hour = $18.00 per hour).

➡️ THIS BONUS IS THE RESULT OF CWA’S NEGOTIATIONS WITH AT&T, AS WE BELIEVE *ALL* OF OUR MEMBERS—REGARDLESS OF YOUR JOB TITLE OR WHERE YOU WORK—SHOULD RECEIVE EXTRA PAY WHILE WORKING DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

We appreciate and value all of our members who are working during this pandemic. THANK YOU for all you do!!
