CWA to kick off AT&T Broken Promises Tour
CWA members, allies, and activists are going on a tour from Detroit to Dallas to challenge AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson for breaking promises to invest in his workforce and create at least 7,000 jobs – which he promised to do if the GOP tax scam passed.
Instead of creating jobs, AT&T has cut at least 7,000 jobs and keeps sending work to low-wage and overseas contractors, devastating families and communities across America. AT&T workers are fighting back for fair union contracts that guarantee good jobs, affordable healthcare, and a secure retirement.
AT&T workers Laheelah, Jeremy, and Kelly are taking the fight on the road, heading to AT&T’s headquarters in Dallas to demand AT&T address its broken promises to working people. Along the way, they are stopping at closed AT&T call centers and other company sites where workers are struggling to save jobs. Tour stops include Detroit, Toledo, Columbus, Indianapolis, Bloomington, Kansas City, and Dallas.
