Union President Blames AT$T For Stalled Talks

"William Henderson said Thursday that the company is using a "divide and conquer" strategy by only agreeing to bargain with unionized workers in one region of the country at a time. "They're a big enough company; they should be able to bargain at more than one table at a time," Henderson said.... "We're not going to accept something just because the people in Texas accepted it," Henderson said. "There are different issues here." Henderson said the company has been inflexible in its negotiations with the bargaining team of Local 1298 of Hamden, and has challenged the union to strike if it doesn't like the way the contract talks have been going.

"We're not going to do something that adds stress to the lives of our members." Download entire article in PDF format.
