Local Update

Tomorrow is Thursday so remember to wear RED.

The surplus for all 21 members in Piscataway NJ has been canceled. All 21 will be moved to the Global Provisioning Organization as of Feb 24 to work on a company project for at least 3 months possibly longer.

We encourage everyone to continue to use The Alliance for training and certifications as much as you possibly can. 

Reminder

Tomorrow is Thursday so we ask everyone to wear RED.

Bargaining: Well there has been absolutely no movement since August and there is a rumor that the company will meet with the bargaining team this month. Considering the fact that it is the 23rd we'd be surprised if it did happen this month. AT&T has made it clear that they can legally layoff people and they are doing just that. There are also news articles circulating about the closing of the Syracuse call center in April and it being moved to Orlando. Along with other articles of office closings all over the northeastern US. This is unprecedented actions that have never happened in the company before and they are clearly showing how much they don't care and that their level of greed is at an all time high.

AT&T wants to hit a watermark and apparently they will get to that number one way or another.

We need to continue to try to fight for a fair contract and have the company actually sit down and negotiate with our bargaining team. If we don't stand together as a united front then we have already lost. 

AT&T Surplus 12/14

There are no words that can describe what happened to Local 1150 members today. 
 
If you don't already know there was a surplus declared today and 22 of our members were affected, all of them in Piscataway NJ.
 
11 Customer Switch Technicians
10 Customer Maintenance Technicians
1 Reports Clerk.
Including our members there was a total of 77 Legacy T represented members surplused today. There are resources available to those affected, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us so we can help in any way possible.
AT&T has consistently stated that they want to extend the watermark to almost 50% which means they want to get rid of that many of us under the Legacy T contract. So apparently they are going to get to that number one way or another. There is a National Union call on Monday night and everyone is welcome to join. 

December 17, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. (EST) to give an update and discuss next steps in bargaining. To register for the call text LEGTCALL to 69866.

VTP offer today

And AT&T keeps reminding us how much they value us by presenting another VTP offer today. This one is for 80 members under the Legacy T contract. There is no surplus attached. They are moving this VTP at a surprisingly fast pace with members being off payroll in 3 weeks, where it is usually 30 days.

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.

STILL NO CONTRACT!!

Members,
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. 
WEAR RED ON THURSDAYS!!

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. 

 

WEAR RED ON THURSDAY!!
