Categories: AFGE National President

20,000 CWA members went on strike this weekend over unfair labor practices 

WASHINGTON – Over 20,000 technicians, customer support representatives, and others who install, maintain and support AT&T’s residential and business wireline telecommunications network across the southeastern portion of the country went on strike this weekend because of AT&T’s unfair labor practices, including a failure to bargain in good faith. 

In response, American Federation of Government Employees National President J. David Cox Sr. released the following statement: 

“AFGE members across the nation stand in solidarity with striking CWA members fighting for a fair contract and a fair process. We urge AT&T to immediately discontinue its unfair labor practices, come back to the table in good faith, and negotiate an agreement that addresses the concerns of its employees and provides CWA members with dignity, fairness and respect on the job.”
