CALIFORNIA, NEVADA -- Seventeen thousand AT&T technicians and call center staff in California and Nevada went on a grievance strike Wednesday morning in protest of the company’s illegal actions. The company has shown disrespect to the bargaining process by changing the work assignments of workers without bargaining as required by federal law. Further, AT&T reneged on an agreement to resolve the dispute without any explanation. The workers are represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA).
Despite being one of the most profitable companies in the country, AT$T is constantly forcing us to do more with less. And they’re failing our communities by refusing to invest in their crumbling lines.
