the not so Successful Sharing Plan

Our office has received some inquiries regarding the SSP payout that is normally deposited into employee HRA accounts.  However, because the closing stock price on September 30, 2013, of $33.82, was lower than the opening stock price, of $37.75 on October 1, 2012, (down 10.41%) there will be no payout this year. The "Stock Appreciation Award Value" is only paid out when the stock price increases.   We do not get the dividend payout since we traded that in bargaining to cover the increases in the Cash Balance Account.

The sacrifices you, your family members, and your friends have made defending our country provide us the freedoms that we have in life today.  As a union we are very big on fighting for each other and looking out for each others best interest, and with that being said there is no bigger show of unity than our US Armed Forces members.   So whether you served in the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, or Marine Corps we say thank you for your service and a sincere thank you to all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  Happy Veterans Day from CWA Local 1150.

Retiree Healthcare

AT&T Retiree Health Care Increases
 
Despite the fact that retiree health care is not a "mandatory subject of bargaining," which means that the company is not forced to bargain this issue with us, in fact many companies still  voluntarily agree to bargain retiree health care.  AT&T has not and has imposed large increases on our retirees, which are particularly difficult for retirees on fixed incomes.
 
Just because we can't legally force them to bargain over this issue dues not mean our members and retirees should not let AT&T know, loud and clear, that this is the WRONG thing to do.
