This greedy company makes billions off our backs but continues to
try and take from us - demanding more work for less and trying to
replace us with low-wage workers at third party dealers and
overseas. It’s time to show them we’re not going to sit back and

Going on strike is a decision that is not made lightly. Your
bargaining team has worked countless hours to negotiate in good
faith to reach an agreement, but this company is refusing to budge
on the issues that matter the most to us. The Union has also filed
unfair labor practice charges at the National Labor Relations Board
over AT&T's refusal to furnish information related to bargaining.
We need to make it clear to AT&T that this information is crucial
to reaching a fair contract.
We are counting on every single
member to be out on that picket line and demonstrate the commitment
and solidarity that have been the values we’ve lived by throughout
CWA’s proud history.
WHAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR:
- A fair wage
increase that is enough to cover increased healthcare costs.
AT&T offered a 2% increase per year – not enough to pay for the
healthcare increases coming.
- For RSCs: a higher base and/or a commission
plan that AT&T can’t change every month. Commissions for Retail
Sales Consultants have gone down steadily over the past 2 years.
Commissions are wages and a mandatory subject of bargaining.
- No increase to
healthcare contributions in 2021.
Ending the 2-tier plan so new employees can afford healthcare.
AT&T wants us to pay even more!

stores are being replaced with authorized dealers in record numbers.
Call centers are shrinking here and AT&T is outsourcing more of our
work. Network contracting continues and we are being left out of the
- We need AT&T to commit to keeping a ratio of
COR stores to Authorized Retail. So far, they say NO!
- Outsourced calls must be returned to our call
- Absence and
attendance policy. AT&T wants
to add “wait days” before we can be paid when we call in sick. They
also want to drastically reduce sick days for new employees.
If something changes at the bargaining table, we will let
you know. Until then, expect to strike on Friday.
