Sisters and brothers, the fight in California and Nevada continues for a fair deal from AT&T. From here it looks like AT&T is having trouble achieving labor peace with those like us who built the network. Our turn is coming next spring and I can only recommend that we all start saving our Fairness and Unity money now, in case we need to send AT&T a message then!
Below is the CWA International’s statement on the vote-tally. Stay strong, save money, watch each other’s backs.
