AT&T Surplus announcement

We’re outraged at AT&T’s surplus announcement today of 339 Legacy T workers.  It includes four office closings – two in Pittsburg, one in Birmingham and one in Augusta in addition to a big hit in St. Louis and the smaller numbers in other areas.  Management gave no advance notice to the Locals so they could help prepare their membership.

AT&T will be giving out sleeping bags to those employees who need them today at the bedminster location.

The company is allowing employees to also purchase fuel for personal vehicles at their cost. no credit cards or cash will be accepted, you must show company ID and give your ATTUID and the cost will be deducted from your pay. there is a limit of 15 gallons per vehicle, you can get the fuel at Bedminster NJ, Morristown NJ, Middletown NJ, and Huntington NY locations. The fuel depots are closed for today and will resume on Thursday Nov 8.

10/9 HRA Update

 

 
I had accessed my Health Reimbursement Account - Active (HRA) and it list as follows: Contribution Date 10/1/12, Processed Date 10/8/12, Amount $1323.00. It seems that the company has met their contractual agreement with CWA at Legacy T. It further states:

 

  1. Your benefit plan period lasts between 01/01/2012 and 12/31/2012.
  2. You can submit claims for expenses with dates of service between 01/01/2012 and 12/31/2012.
  3. In order to receive payment, your prior year claims must be postmarked by 3/31 of the current year.

 

 

Local 1150 is suggesting that all our members check their accounts to verify that they have received their contractual allocation. If you have not received it, please contact your supervisor by email with the following:

HRA Update

 

Accelerated SSP Payment for HRA’s

 

 
We have been informed by the Company that the Accelerated SSP amount of $1323.00 will be deposited in your HRAs on October 1, 2012. The reason it is taking so long is because they had to set up HRAs for people who did not already have them, and all the deposits need to be done the same day. It is still almost 3 months before the Dec. 31, 2012 date originally required for the 2012 payout.
 
Remember, there will be a second payout in December of both the fourth quarter dividend payment and any increase in the stock price over the $35.66 the accelerated payout was based on. We will continue to update our Members to any changes or increases to the SSP and HRA accounts.

 

Contract Ratified!!

The votes have been counted, and the Legacy T contract was ratified by 67.6%. The AT&T Puerto Rico Contract was ratified by 90%. As soon as we have information on the date you will receive your retroactive pay, we will get it out to you.

 

Our Bargaining Teams want to thank you for all your support during these difficult months; particularly those Locals that worked so hard on their mobilization efforts.

Mobilization isn’t just for Contract time. In addition to supporting our brothers and sisters in Districts 1, 9 and 3, (whose vote on their TA is not complete,) and Verizon and the upcoming Mobility, District 6 Contracts, it is a powerful weapon to deal with ongoing issues we are sure to have with AT&T.
