AT&T Mobility, DirecTV workers mobilize for a fair, equitable contract

The AT&T Mobility and DirecTV Orange contracts, which were set to expire on February 11, have been extended for two weeks while negotiations for a fair contract continue. After multiple weeks of bargaining, AT&T has failed to meet CWA’s reasonable demands for a fair and equitable contract. Major issues at the table include comprehensive and affordable healthcare plans; retirement security and other benefits; numerous issues regarding authorized retailers; quarantine, pandemic, and natural disaster issues; job security; scheduling and other work from home issues for call center employees; safety issues for technicians working in hazardous conditions; and more.

The members have been ramping up their mobilization efforts to strengthen their power at the bargaining table and improve their working conditions. During Valentine’s Day, hundreds of members signed virtual “Valentine” cards calling on AT&T to “show the love for a fair contract.”
