Utilities bargaining report #19

**This message is being sent to All ATT Local Presidents, District 3 Staff and Secretaries and posted to the D3 Website**

The Committee was represented at the Common Interest Table yesterday and we presented the Union’s counter proposal to their inadequate benefit package. Once again, the Company did not present a wage proposal.

We provided a sample of the cooling vest to the Company for their analysis and we hope to have their feedback soon.

The Committee is in recess until after the holiday and we remain subject to call.

Thanks to Local 3615 for providing lunch yesterday!

Work Safe! Stay Strong! Keep Mobilizing!

IT’S OUR TURN!!!

Your committee met today and countered the latest ATT benefit and pension offers.  We are standing firm against the corporation freezing your pension plans.  We still have no wage offer.

As the Labor Day Holiday approaches we will be caucusing among ourselves then breaking in observance of the holiday.

We will return to the table after the holiday.

Special thanks to Local 3615 for providing todays lunch

WE ARE READY!

Utilities bargaining report #18

**This message is being sent to All ATT Local Presidents, District 3 Staff and Secretaries and posted to the D3 Website**

Your Bargaining Committee met with the Company and was able to reach a tentative agreement on a proposal to include Utility Operations in the Occupational Safety and Health Committee referenced in Article 16.03 of the BST Telecommunications Agreement. This tentative agreement will add an additional member to the OSH Committee from CWA-Utility Operations and an additional member from the Company. We have had numerous discussions with the Company regarding safety issues that affect our members during 2015 bargaining, and our participation in this Committee will provide them a voice long after bargaining has ended.

The Company rejected more Union proposals that would have expanded the scope of work for Machine Operators to include DTV buried wire work and provide language for PMRs.

There are still proposals on the table to improve paid time off, increase uniform program allowances and increase termination allowances. We also have issues being addressed at the Common Interest Table concerning benefits plan improvements although we have still not seen a wage proposal from the Company at the CIT.

Bargaining Report #59

**This message is being sent to All ATT Local Presidents, District 3 Staff and Secretaries and posted to the D3 Website**

Today we reviewed information relative to the paltry proposals the company has presented.  The company continues to blow smoke and spew minutia, anxiously hoping we will buy into their shenanigans.

We will continue to stand our ground in order to secure a contract that ensures affordable healthcare, family time, a safe work environment, and the respect we deserve as the employees of one of the largest telecom companies in the world.  Just to put their size into perspective, 2014 revenues would be enough to give every man, woman and child in the United States more than $415 each.

The company is very healthy and should act as a model corporate citizen rather than a scoundrel.  Your efforts are continuing to be effective.  They appear to be

increasingly nervous, and for good reason.

Special thanks to Local 3611 for providing lunch

Bargaining Report #58

**This message is being sent to All ATT Local Presidents, District 3 Staff and Secretaries and posted to the D3 Website**

Your bargaining committee met among ourselves today.  We expect to meet with AT&T tomorrow at the bargaining table.

Since our first day we have made it clear that what we want, WHAT YOU DESERVE, is a fair and equitable agreement containing work rules and processes to facilitate your work life; benefits and wages reflective of your contribution of the massive earnings the company has enjoyed and dignity and respect on the job. 

We will leave no stone unturned until we achieve an agreement that satisfies these needs.

Thanks to American Retirement Solutions Agency Christopher Boggs for providing lunch today.
