AT&T Mobility Orange – Bargaining Report #9

February 18, 2022

After a bad start to bargaining this week, we did have some progress in more recent bargaining sessions. The progress is not nearly enough to get us to a contract. Medical benefits are still a real sticking point and we remain very far apart. In a world where we are dealing with a pandemic and the physical and emotional stress caused by the pandemic, the Company is trying to increase cost for benefits and medications. We believe the health of our members is of utmost importance, and affordable medical benefits/prescription drugs are a major part in keeping people safe and healthy. The Orange Bargaining Committee is empowered by the mobilization of our members on the job. We will fight as long as it takes to get a fair and equitable contract. We need you to continue to stay mobilized and stay informed. It is easy to let up on mobilization as bargaining continues for a long period of time, but we need everyone to stay engaged and ready to fight for everything you deserve!! WE will prevail—ONE DAY LONGER, ONE DAY STRONGER!!
