Bargaining Update

The Bargaining Team has received numerous questions about the BCB2 Plan. BCB2 stands for Bargained Cash Balance Program 2. This plan was introduced in 2009 for new hires in 2010 and beyond. It was originally designed as a fix to counter the Company discontinuing a defined pension plan for future employees.

 

We met with the Company three separate times today but no progress was made.

 

Today is Thursday so remember to wear RED!!!

 

Bargaining report #37

The Bargaining Team met with the Company this morning. The Company passed proposals on DTV which for the most part were rejections of our previous proposals. The Bargaining Team feels that there were no gains for our DTV members in their proposals. This is an insult to our Brothers and Sisters and we are committed to bargain for fair and just treatment for our members in the DTV Memorandum Of Agreement. TURN IT UP DTV! We need your participation and support.

here we go again

So we are still working without a contract, and the threat of a strike is still a possibility and you know what?  AT&T doesn't care!! 

Wear RED on Thursdays, click, clap, bang just do something everyday so management knows your pissed off!! This is for all of our futures, job security, healthcare benefits, retirement benefits, job skills training, pay increases and more. AT&T wants to get rid of all of these things and leave you with nothing, all while possibly even surplusing you! 

Latest Bargaining Report

This afternoon the Bargaining Team passed a comprehensive proposal on DirecTV.  In addition we passed proposals on Article 21 (Excused Work Days), The Career Support Coorindator Position and CWA-COPE PAC.  We rejected the Company's proposal on Electronic Monitoring.

The Company rejected our proposals on Relocation Pay in Articles 16 and 24.  The Company also rejected the following Union proposals under Article 43:

  • Minimum Interval Differential
  • Shifted Tour Differential
  • On Call Payments (increase)
  • Certification Incentive Payment Program (increase)
  • Sunday Differential
  • Relief/Meal Period
  • Add Operations Specialist to Certifications

As you can see the list of rejections continues to get longer.  It is clear that the Company has no interest in even incremental improvements for our members.

Let the Company know loud and clear it is time to agree to a fair and just contract.

One of our shop stewards found this article tonight and after reading it and watching the video it reminded us of some of our offices in AT&T. This seems to be a new practice at this location, but we know here in NY & NJ it is common practice that we consistently fight with management about. 

Thank you Adam Z for sharing this and thank you Local 9511 for keeping up the fight.
