The Communications Workers of America’s intense multi-pronged political program, combined with a year-long effort to highlight the failed promises of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act, made the difference in some of the most competitive races of the 2018 midterm election. Tuesday’s results are a defining moment for pro-worker progressives who will change the face of Congress, state houses and hundreds of local and municipal offices from coast-to-coast.

Piedmont Airlines passenger service agents represented by the Communications Workers of America ratified a new five-year contract today. The agreement covers 6,000 agents in 28 states at the American Airlines subsidiary, and provides significant improvements in the collective bargaining agreement, including wage increases across the board and new defined pay scales.

All 21 Iowa CWA public sector bargaining units have voted overwhelmingly to keep their union.

Happy Halloween!

Over 6 months and AT&T has given us nothing and they still insist on killing our careers. there really isn't much else to say so here are some documents to put around the workspace. Maybe we'll have a contract by Christmas. 




We are still working without a contract. The bargaining team went home at the end of August because AT&T refuses to negotiate a contract. and as of right now they still have made no effort to meet with our bargaining team. Locals across the nation are still mobilizing by wearing red, clicking, handing out flyers and educating the public. We ask that you do the same for each other and yourselves. We are almost at the 6 month mark of working without a contract. This is not how a company that cares about it's employees behaves. 

AT&T Benefits Enrollment

We are encouraging all AT&T members to go to HR onestop and check your benefit enrollment options. As of right now the cost will remain the same as well as coverage and options. This is because the company refuses to sit wit our bargaining team and negotiate a new contract. So for now they screwed themselves. Once a new contract is negotiated the costs could and most likely will change at a specified and agreed upon date. It only takes about 5 minutes or less to do.  We encourage everyone to enroll even if you aren't making any changes.
