AT & T, CWA reach contract agreement
AT&T Mobility has reached a tentative agreement on a contract covering 11,200 union workers in the Southeast. AT&T is the only top carrier in the country whose wireless employees are unionized.
The proposed four-year agreement between AT&T and the Communications Workers of America (CWA) includes a compounded wage increase of more than 10 percent over the length of the contract for workers in CWA District 3, which includes Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee.
Health care coverage was not included in the contract because CWA handles the issue on a union-wide level instead of a regional level.
The new contract has to be ratified by union members. CWA will submit the agreement to its members during the coming days and weeks.
