Our Fight

CWA members at AT&T Midwest and AT&T’s national Legacy T division are fighting for fair union contracts and have voted to strike if necessary to secure a deal that guarantees good jobs, affordable healthcare, and a secure retirement.

AT&T received a $21 billion windfall from the Tax Cut and Jobs Act passed in late 2017, and is projecting $3 billion in annual tax savings going forward. But instead of keeping good family-supporting jobs in our communities, the company announced thousands of layoffs, continues to send work to low-wage contractors, and sends jobs overseas to at least eight countries.

In fact, the company eliminated 23,328 jobs since the tax bill passed.

If AT&T wants to maintain its credibility as a responsible corporation, it must stop destroying good jobs and betraying workers who have dedicated decades of their lives to an employer they believed in.
