CWA-AT$T Legacy T Bargaining Report #45Legacy T Bargaining Report #45 - May 10, 2012
The Bargaining Teams met all day today in subcommittee, and we held wide-ranging discussions on all the outstanding ?Local issues? (those specific to our Contract). Following that discussion, we agreed to TA several Articles and both sides withdrew some demands. Some progress was made on some smaller issues, but we are still very far apart on all of the really big issues ? health care, employment security (including subcontracting and off-shoring), pensions, wages, and improving conditions in our call centers and for our lower-paid titles.
Some serious activity is going to have to take place to put enough pressure on the Company to push them to move on those key issues.
