Austin, TX -- The Communications Workers of America (CWA) today announced a tentative contract agreement with AT&T Mobility in CWA District 6, an agreement that includes the return of a minimum of 2,000 jobs over the four year life of the agreement.
CWA District 6 currently represents approximately 9,300 workers in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.
“I am pleased to present this proposal to our members, a proposal that supports a fair standard of living and reflects AT&T Mobility’s acknowledgment of the role our members play everyday in the company’s success,” said CWA District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings Jr. “In particular, I am pleased that we were able to bring back a significant number of jobs.”
The tentative agreement also calls for annual wage increases of two percent, 2.5 percent, 2.25 percent and 2.5 percent respectively over the life of the contract, as well as no regressive change to existing pension plans. Further, the tentative agreement calls for a $1,000 per member ratification bonus, and creation of a transfer plan that includes movement between Mobility and CORE.
The agreement now goes to the full membership for ratification.
