AT&T Retirees need our help

Dear local 1150 members,

We are asking all of you to sign the petition on the link provided to help our retirees. Please read the letter below from Local 4250 President Steve Tisza.

 

Sisters & Brothers:

I signed a petition to Randall Stephenson, CEO which says:

"AT&T has over 300,000 current retirees. On December 31, 2014 AT&T Medicare eligible retirees and their Medicare eligible spouses will lose their current group healthcare coverage under the AT&T Group Health Plan. Current AT&T retirees are being forced to enroll in individual health insurance coverage through the AON Retiree Health Exchange for coverage beginning January 1, 2015."

Will you sign this petition? Click here:
