Austin, Texas -- Communications Workers of America District 6 has reached a tentative agreement with AT&T Southwest.
District 6 covers about 22,000 CWA members at AT&T operations in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri. Details of the tentative agreement are being provided to members and locals, and a ratification vote by the membership will be concluded by Feb. 27. An earlier tentative agreement was turned down by a narrow vote last month.
Separate negotiations are continuing for a new contract covering 22,000 AT&T Mobility Workers in 36 states and the District of Columbia. That contract expires Feb. 9.
Also continuing are separate negotiations with AT&T West, covering 18,000 CWA members in California and Nevada, and with AT&T East in Connecticut, covering 3,000 members of CWA Local 1298. CWA members at AT&T Midwest, AT&T Legacy and AT&T Southeast have ratified new contracts.
