AT$T CEO Randall Stephenson Promised To Invest In His Workforce And Create At least 7,000 Jobs If The Tax Bill Passed.
AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson made a promise to invest in his workforce and create at least 7,000 jobs if the tax bill passed. Well, the bill passed and AT&T laid off over a thousand workers after it received a $20 billion tax cut windfall.
It’s clear that CEO Stephenson hasn’t followed through on his promise to invest in working people. Now, even more money is going straight to the richest Americans while working people struggle to get by with less.
Communications Workers of America members at AT&T Midwest and AT&T’s national Legacy T division have been at the bargaining table with AT&T since March and we’re willing to do whatever it takes to secure a deal that guarantees good jobs, affordable healthcare, and a secure retirement. We may even be forced to strike soon if necessary to get the fair deal we deserve.
This fight is bigger than AT&T. It’s about making sure working people can make a decent living in this country.
We are up against powerful corporations that are working us harder for less while the richest Americans, like AT&T's Randall Stephenson, make millions off our backs. We hope you’ll sign our petition to stand with us in this fight for good jobs.
Thank you for your support
