Let's stand together

In just about 2 months the Legacy T contract expires with AT&T. We need to stand together and show the company we won't settle for there layoff plans and increase of medical costs to us, and cutbacks on medical benefits. A lot of our members are approaching retirement years, we need to fight for retiree benefits, not just for us but for our sisters and brothers before us that helped get us where we are now. The last contract the company refused to negotiate retiree benefits. WE CAN NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!!  It's not to early to start showing them we mean business. We can start mobilizing with something as small as everyone wearing a red shirt on Thursdays.  This is a fight for your future and possibly your families as well. Let's stand together and show them we mean business. 

 

Also we will be utilizing the new local app for mobilizing efforts and updates on contract negotiations. so go to the itunes app store and Androis store and find the CWA 1150 app. download it for free and at the bottom register yourself. We will be sending private messages to registered members about negotiations and efforts.

AT&T Benefit update

We have been informed that AT&T Benefits MISTAKENLY sent out letters to some of our members stating that their children were being removed from AT&T Medical Coverage because they reached the age of 26.  Unfortunately, they are sending it to people whose children are NOT 26 yet.  Though we will try to confirm that it is fixed from this end, I would encourage any member who gets one of these letters in error to call benefits and make sure it is corrected.
 
NOTE: AT&T Dental Coverage does end on December 31 of the year the dependent reaches age 23.

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."
