Appeals court upholds AT&T-Time Warner merger

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the $85 billion merger between AT&T and Time Warner, dealing a blow to government regulators who sued to stop the merger.

CWA expressed support for this merger with the full expectation that it would lead to the creation and protection of good jobs in the United States, especially jobs that enable working people to negotiate a fair return on their work. CWA also expects increased investment in communities through improved services and benefits for consumers.
