Passing of Charlie Murphy Local 1058

We are saddened to inform you that our brother from Local 1058 President Charlie Murphy has passed away on 1/9/20.

Charlie was once a member of Local 1150 and in the 80's he petitioned the national to start Local 1058 to represent the clerical workers in NJ. This was approved and 1058 started with around 3000 members and he remained very active every day since. He has fought and won many grievances at the local and national levels for all union members.

He organized many rallies during bargaining and once he even had over 50 cars of employees to start a parade of members that got a police escort and drove though many of the companies properties and blowing car horns.

There was another time he organized a rally to CEO (at the time) Bob Allen's home in NJ and the members marched down his street carrying a coffin to deliver to his home because our healthcare was a big issue, and let's just say his neighbors were not very happy about it. 

 

Charlie you did great things for a lot of CWA members and you will be truly missed but never forgotten. Rest easy now brother and we will continue the fight down here.

 

 

Retiree Benefit Changes

AT&T bargained employees

Planning for retirement requires careful consideration, and we want to point out an important update to the retirement benefits currently enjoyed by retired AT&T bargained employees.

Once eligible for Medicare, generally at age 65, your primary health insurance coverage transfers to Medicare. The company currently offers a subsidy to eligible retirees to help cover out-of-pocket costs or to purchase incremental coverages, like Medicare Advantage or supplemental coverage.

Here is what’s changing:
