Bargaining Update

AT&T Midwest and AT&T Legacy T

Check out U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders' new video highlighting how despite gaining a massive windfall from the Republican corporate tax cut bill and making big public promises to create jobs in the U.S., AT&T is actually laying off workers and sending their jobs overseas.


On Wednesday, AT&T workers, joined by CWA President Chris Shelton, Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens, District 4 Vice President Linda L. Hinton, and Telecommunications & Technologies Vice President Lisa Bolton marched to AT&T's Indiana headquarters, then rallied at Monument Circle to hold AT&T accountable for its promises to keep good, family-supporting jobs in Indiana and in communities across the United States.

Air Wisconsin

Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants, members of AFA-CWA, picketed at O'Hare International Airport on Friday to push for a fair contract. Air Wisconsin secured a long-term contract to provide regional air service for United Airlines this year.

"Air Wisconsin management has security for the future. Now it's time for Flight Attendants to have security with a new contract of their own," said Ernie Lazernick, AFA-CWA Air Wisconsin President. "Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants deserve to earn a living wage that recognizes our role as aviation's first responders."

Negotiations continued this week in Milwaukee, Wis.
