AT&T workers win improvements in job security

E-bulletin #9 reported on recent industrial action by employees of US telecommunications giant, AT&T.

The strike was significant because it included demands for greater job security as well as being the first that had included employees of AT&T’s satellite-based pay TV arm, DIRECTV.

The Communication Workers of America (CWA) has now reported that a tentative agreement, subject to membership ratification, has been reached with the company in relation to its operations in some states.

The proposed four-year settlement provides for pay raises, improvements in job security and retirement benefits, continued affordable healthcare, and other improvements for AT&T West and DIRECTV West workers in California and Nevada. This proposed contract is the first for DIRECTV workers.

Details of the job security provisions will be reported in the E-bulletin when they become public.
