AT&T Mobility Orange Contract 2017 Bargaining: Report 57

This morning AT&T sent out an email to our membership that begs clarification. While not exactly fake news, it is misleading and aimed at dividing our membership.

AT&T Mobility Orange Contract 2017 Bargaining: Report 56

AT&T passed CWA several proposals this week and our Committee spent the week reviewing the proposals along with our open data requests to see what AT&T has still failed to provide us.

The bargaining committees met this week and discussed monitoring in the Retail stores and Call Centers, and the Company’s unilateral changes to the MI-60 assignment in the Call Centers. We will revisit this next week when bargaining reconvenes.

AT&T Mobility workers, members of CWA from California, D.C., Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Virginia, traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with Members of Congress to speak about how AT&T’s offshoring and its third party dealer structure are harming workers and communities.

The Bargaining Committee and the Company met today to continue our dialogue on the Company’s proposed changes to Retail commissions for September and October, which many of you saw posted previously on the My CSP.

AT&T Mobility Orange Contract 2017 Bargaining: Report 53

This week bargaining focused on commission changes AT&T has planned for September and October. RSCs have seen an update on the “My CSP” page that describes changes including credit for some on-line sales and uncapping the Entertainment component for two months.

The CWA and AT&T bargainers met this week via phone conference. Among the many issues we discussed was the new Leave Link process which has caused chaos with our members who need to access FMLA, Short Term Disability, and ADA accommodations to name a few. CWA has added failure to bargain the effects of this change to our long list of labor law violations and we have filed Unfair Labor Practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board.

There have been no meetings scheduled with the Company this week. This doesn’t mean that your Bargaining Committee has taken a break; in fact, quite the opposite. We have been busy working on the numerous Unfair Labor Practice Charges that have been filed against the company as a result of the unilateral changes the company continues to make. Remember, while we are working without a contract the company cannot make changes to any terms and conditions of employment. Please continue to notify your Local if you uncover any changes that are being made.
