The District 4 Midwest bargaining team was able to reach a tentative agreement covering both Core wireline and COS with AT&T Midwest today. The bargaining team is currently working to finalize terms that will be presented to Midwest CWA members for formal approval and ratification.
The team was able to negotiate a three year agreement which includes general wage increases, new healthcare options, and increases to our pensions. Additionally, the bargaining team protected and improved our job security language and made improvements to provisions within the appendixes including wage adjustments.
The bargaining team would like to thank the leaders of every local and each member for the amazing amount of support they provided during this round of negotiations which started on March 4th.
A detailed report will follow at a later date, as the team prepares for a soon to be scheduled contract explanation meeting with Local presidents.
