The Company has informed us of their intention to canvass employees for more loans to California.
As you may know, CWA District 9 (California and Nevada) is currently in negotiations with their contract expiration at midnight, April 9, 2016. We have been asked by District 9 to not have volunteers working in California past the expiration date. We know our members understand that no one wants workers from outside the District doing work while bargaining is taking place; we support all those who bargain with AT&T.
If the Company proceeds with a canvass, we ask that our members do not volunteer to work in District 9 beyond their contract’s expiration. In the event the Company attempts to force, we ask that our members notify their manager that they are requesting a Union steward before continuing the discussion.
