CWA-DirectTV Effects Bargaining Report #1 - July 29, 2021

30 Jul, 2021

Effects  bargaininbetween   CWA  and  AT&T kicked   off this  week,  via  virtual conference, regarding the sale of DirecTV.


CWA District 6 Assistant to Vice President, Sylvia J. Ramos, is chairing the bargaining for CWA.  Bargaining  kicked off with District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings opening  statements  demanding  that   our  members   be  treated   fairly  in  the upcoming transition and  stated  that  CWA  was committed to  ensuring that  all bargaining unit members  continue to be treated  justly as this transition moves forward.


AT&T and the NEW DirecTV advised CWA that they will be assuming all contracts that  cover our members.  While this was certainly a positive step,  CWA began effects bargaining with AT&T to ensure our members wages, benefits and working conditions will be protected  until successor contracts are negotiated with DirecTV.


Discussions this week centered  on understanding the transition of our bargaining unit, collective bargaining agreements  as well as our health and welfare plans, programs  and  policies.   The CWA  and  Company committees have had several discussions with regards to contractual provisions and are awaiting responses from the company regarding additional issues and concerns that we have raised.


We will provide updates accordingly as additional information becomes available.
