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 made $30 billion in profits last year and just received a $20 billion tax cut. 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.

Since 2011, the company has closed 44 call centers and laid off thousands of workers, resulting in the destruction of 16,000 call center jobs nationwide.

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.
