Workers at Brightspeed of Texas and Missouri ratify new contracts

30 May, 2023

Workers at Brightspeed of Texas (formerly Lumen Technologies), members of CWA Local 6174, overwhelmingly ratified a new five-year contract last month that provides a 14 percent pay raise over that period for all employees. The contract also includes improvements to paid time off with two new fixed holidays, improved pay for employees on standby time, the addition of a new job title, as well as additional protections for schedules and seniority. The bargaining team, with the support of the members, was able to successfully negotiate these gains without agreeing to any retrogressive demands or givebacks.

Workers at Brightspeed of Missouri also reached an agreement for a new five-year contract that includes an over 15 percent pay increase over the life of the contract and additional improvements to benefits and working conditions. The contract was overwhelmingly ratified by members of CWA Locals 6312, 6300, 6311, and 6373.
