The Bargaining Committee gave a detailed report on the status of negotiations and AT$T’s retrogressive demands. Vice President Runnion spoke to the group regarding next steps and the need for mobilization and solidarity. He also gave a report on DIRECTV negotiations where logistics are still being worked out.

The mobilization team gave a report on current events within the district along with future plans for mobilization. Each of our twenty-two local presidents provided feedback to Vice President Runnion on their membership with respect to bargaining. The overall feedback is:
THE MEMBERS ARE READY TO STAND UNITED AND FIGHT FOR A FAIR CONTRACT!
The Bargaining Committee was notified that a long-time member of Local 9003 died while on the job today. Our sympathy goes out to his family, friends and coworkers.
Remember that you are fighting more than your own fight. You are fighting for the entire working class and you must stand together. ~ William Dudley “Big Bill” Haywood
