CWA/ AT&T Bargaining Bulletin #30
May 10, 2016
CWA Members Greet Randall Stephenson with a Huge Protest in El Segundo
Today your Bargaining Committee met in formal session with AT$T where the Company presented a package proposal, which for the first time included a wage offer that fails to meet the rising standard of living or the increased healthcare costs that the company has on the table. The package proposal contained 8 of the Company’s 24 proposals.
1) A meager wage increase,
2) Illness Absence – Appendix A
3) Illness Absence – Appendix D
4) Illness Absence – Appendix E
5) Employment Security and Layoffs
6) Force Allocation
8) Benefits – Appendix D
The Company has moved slightly off of its Illness Absence proposal regarding wait days and has made no movement whatsoever on proposals 5-8 listed on this bulletin. The Company’s other 16 retrogressive proposals remain on the table.
