CWA reaches tentative agreements with AT&T West, Altice

CWA bargaining team reached a tentative agreement with AT&T on a new four-year contract for AT&T West workers. The CWA AT&T West contract covers more than 13,000 technicians, call center customer support workers, and administrative staff in California and Nevada.

The tentative agreement provides for pay raises, affordable healthcare, and increased pension benefits. It also maintains existing job offer guarantee provisions in the event of layoffs.

"I am proud of our CWA bargaining team for negotiating a strong contract, under difficult circumstances, that protects good, family-supporting jobs in California and Nevada,” said CWA District 9 Vice President Frank Arce. "CWA members are out there every day installing, maintaining, and supporting critical communications services so businesses can continue operations and customers can stay in contact with their loved ones. Our member mobilization meant that our bargaining team had the support they needed to win a fair agreement well before the current contract expired."

Also, the CWA Local 1103 bargaining committee reached a tentative agreement with Altice on a three-year agreement that provides real job security, wage increases, and much more.

“Our priority is to ensure worker and customer safety, solve problems, and provide reliable essential service to our customers,” the CWA statement continued. “We continue to work collaboratively to address issues as they arise.”
