CWA workers in Harrisburg begin weekend strike against AT&T
20 May, 2017, 00:06
"Now, AT&T is facing the possibility of closed stores for the first time ever".
The three-day strike will last through the weekend, according to the workers' union, the Communications Workers of America.
He said the contracts at issue Friday cover a small portion of the company's 265,000-person workforce.
The employees walked out of the store around 3 p.m. and are picketing on the side of the road to grab the attention of drivers. The held signs reading "On Strike" as customers went in and out of the store and pedestrians walked by.
Employees want an agreement between the Communication Workers of America Union and AT&T Mobility.
The workers have demanded affordable benefits, fair wages and job security.
"We're offering terms in which our employees in these contracts - some of whom average from $115,00 to $148,000 in total compensation - will be better off financially", said Giga. 12,000 call center jobs in the United States have been eliminated since 2011 as AT&T has chosen to instead contract with third-party vendors overseas that supply low-wage workers who aren't subject to much weaker labor protections.
AT&T Mobility is one of the single largest retail workforces with union representation anywhere in the U.S. numerous 100,000 members are recently organized after CWA scored victories under "bargaining to organize" agreements with the company, which allowed for speedy representation elections.
AT&T has been under pressure to control costs as its biggest business - wireless phone service - has matured and faced rising competition from Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.
The strike is expected to end Sunday evening, with workers returning to the job Monday.
