Communications Workers of America Fail to Ratify Agreement Covering AT&T Wireline Employees in Southeast

Dallas, Texas, September 28, 2012

AT&T* today announced that wireline employees represented by the Communications Workers of America failed to ratify a three-year contract for the AT&T Southeast region.

The contract covers more than 22,000 AT&T wireline employees in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. AT&T said it was unfortunate that the very fair and reasonable contract was not ratified, and will continue to work to reach an agreement. 

Employees ratified two smaller contracts with the CWA covering AT&T Billing Southeast and Southeast Utility Operations. The two smaller contracts collectively cover about 400 AT&T wireline employees.

AT&T wireline employees represented by the CWA earlier ratified, on Aug. 17, three-year contracts for the Midwest region and AT&T Corp. (CWA Telecommunications and Technology Office) collectively covering nearly 19,000 AT&T wireline employees.
