AT&T announced that AT&T Mobility has reached a tentative agreement with the Communications Workers of America, CWA, in contract negotiations covering more than 20,000 AT&T Mobility employees in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The four-year agreement covers Mobility employees in CWA Districts 1, 2/13, 4, 7, and 9 – generally in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Mountain States and West Coast. Out of respect for the CWA and its membership, AT&T will not comment on details of the tentative agreement until it has been presented to members by their leadership. The agreement, which is subject to ratification, covers wages, pension, disability and work rules. Health care and other benefits are bargained separately. CWA members in October ratified a separate four-year benefit agreement for all CWA-bargained Mobility employees nationwide.
Happy demi-anniversary, stock market rally. Will the honeymoon ever end?
