AT&T Legacy TENTATIVE AGREEMENT Reached

AT&T Legacy T Bargaining Report #41 - Tentative Agreement (TA) Reached.
May 13, 2015

Legacy T Bargaining Report #41 - Tentative Agreement Reached(*)
After over two months of bargaining we have reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) at the Legacy T table.  The team feels we were able to beat back the majority of the Company’s retrogressive demands.  While there are increases in the cost of Health Care, they are much less than the Company originally demanded and we have added an option with lower premiums. We negotiated wage increases that will more than cover those costs and give our members significantly more money in their pockets during the life of this agreement. Rather than the pension freeze the Company wanted, we got a pension increase and maintained and improved our job security language.(*)
A more detailed report will be posted within 24 hours and even more detail will be presented to the Local Presidents at the Contract explanation meeting and to you before your ratification vote.(*)
Legacy T and District 4 are both announcing our TA’s today.(*)
We want to thank all the Locals and Members who mobilized to make this agreement possible.  It would not have happened without your participation.(*)
Your Bargaining Team,(*)

AT&T Legacy - No Strike Yet. Keep Mobilizing. Stay Informed.

Legacy T Bargaining Update
The Contract has expired. We are continuing to bargain without a Contract. There can be no business as usual. While we are still negotiating, we are very angry with the lack of movement at the table. However, we are committed to keeping our Members earning a pay check and keeping the Company off balance while we continue to fight at the table and you continue to fight on the job.
In Unity,
Your Bargaining Team
 

April 14, 2015 11:56am

Our Members at AT&T Legacy face a possible Work Stoppage at noon today. Bargaining for this nationwide contract has been going on for weeks and the contract has been extended until Noon today. For those members at Legacy AT&T, you will be contacted as soon as we hear anything regarding a work stoppage with further instructions.
For Verizon members, certain facilities around our footprint are joint AT&T/Verizon use. If a picket line is up at a Verizon designated entrance then call your immediate supervisor and advise you are unable to cross the picket line. We would also advise you to contact the local.
Please contact the local with any questions.
