Striking CWA Members Push AT&T Southeast to Reach Deal [telecom]

Thanks to the dedication of CWA members across District 3 who stayed
strong on the picket lines throughout a historic four-day unfair labor
practice strike, CWAers reached a "handshake deal" with AT&T Southeast
on Tuesday on a new collective bargaining agreement for more than
20,000 AT&T employees in nine states.

Workers across the district walked out at midnight on August 23
because AT&T was not bargaining in good faith and failed to send
representatives to the bargaining table with the authority to make
decisions. In a separate action, CWA members in South Florida
initiated an unfair labor practice strike on August 22 after the
company disciplined members for wearing union memorabilia and for
participating in activities that are protected under the National
Labor Relations Act.
