Over 20,000 AT&T Wireless workers will go on strike Friday if they do not reach an agreement on a new contract. Here’s how you can support them.
AT&T Mobility workers belong to the Communication Workers of America (CWA). They work at retail wireless stores, at call centers, and as technicians in 36 states. They have been working without a contract since February.
Last year, CWA members won a massive strike against Verizon. Teamster members supported that strike—and we’ll be there again.
AT&T is hiking workers’ healthcare costs, outsourcing call center jobs and eliminating union positions by replacing company-owned retail stores with “authorized dealers.”
The union is fighting for job security protections, outsourcing restrictions, wage increases that are high enough to cover increased healthcare costs, and a fair absence and attendance policy.
How to Support the Strike
Teamsters at UPS, in freight and at UPS Freight have the right under our contracts to honor any primary picket line.
If you see a primary picket line at an AT&T Moility location, you do not have to make a delivery there.
UPS drivers can enter “strike” on their DIAD board and bring the delivery back to your center at the end of the day.
Many Teamsters who work under local contracts have the right to honor picket lines too—especially if you have a concern about your safety.
The strike is AT&T Mobility is a planned three-day strike
If you’re affected by the AT&T Mobility strike or any other picket line, check your contract or call your local.
The bottom line is: Teamsters don’t cross picket lines!
