The company troll never posted any articles, court case numbers or facts related to union members sabotaging the network so, yet again another slanderous, dubious claim exposed.

@1cgz+1s6faONB

I would hope you have proof to show the authorities, otherwise it’s just slander. Trolling is bad enough but slander takes it up a notch, could be used in court against you. The Union could come after you and sue in civil court for posting dubious claims as factual criminal acts, in a public forum.

So post a credible article or a link to a court case where union members have been convicted of crimes, that you are claiming as factual.

If nothing is posted then I’d like to request a site moderator, to remove the the previous posting by @1cgz+1s6faONB

Those same “skilled” union workers you mentioned who repaired the damage are probably the same slugs that intentionally damaged it to begin with as sabotage. Same cr-p happens after nearly every contract expiration. They drive right to the vulnerable spot (that only they would know about it), cause the damage and then show up acting all heroic type on the trouble to fix it and tell everyone how “skilled” and valuable they are.

Union’s are the worst man.

In the news, some cables were cut in the early morning hours by vandals at the Sacramento airport which, caused backup and delays for many passengers. It was repaired quickly by skilled union technicians but It’s receiving a lot of attention by both local and federal authorities, due to it affecting national transportation. These criminal acts happen on a daily basis all across the network, majority don’t make the news because it’s not as high profile and the sheriff’s office isn’t the security, like at this airport.

Wonder how long it would have taken the CP force to repair this outage or any other damages, if the Union was on strike? They should have walked when the contract expired on April 7, the contract play would be over quickly and a TA would be put to the members for ratification.

Strike would be the d-mbest thing ever. Every day we’re out will save the company millions in exchange for maybe a few missed commitments. Keep showing up, do the bare minimum(some are good at that), don’t give them anything extra.

“ Could go on and on for days but bargained work isn’t a manufacturing or unskilled labor position.”

Nope just filled with underworked union snails with bloated hubris that would find it impossible to be fruitful anywhere there wasn’t a union to “protect” them. Keep sending yourselves Valentine’s Day cards because you’re about to get a contractual dose of painful reality. But hey, at least you know your own hand can pat your back.

I assure you when the Union strikes, the work will be backfilled by unwilling CP managers.
You will learn very quickly that "leadership" cares as much for you as they do the Bargained for Employees.

This "dose" of reality will hit you hard and will be quite disruptive to you and your family.
When the strike is settled, AT&T will be done with you. You know this and it makes you angry.
I don't care.
What do you call 5K managers laid off after their CP duty is concluded?
A good start that was long over due.

WTF are you union folks complaining about? Do you realize how many people in the domestic US would ki-l to have your jobs if they knew all they had to do was pass a multiple choice test and show up for work every day.

What did you do to earn your job at AT&T. This isn't Google, Amazon or Facebook. What are your technical chops?

Latest update, appears we need to start the ULP strike then, go from there. Strike voting ends today. 16.8 billion free cash flow 2023 and a guidance of much more for 2024. Fair contract and nothing less.

“ D3 here. Hold out for us ! The company does NOT want both districts out on strike at same time. Bide your time till August then STRIKE with D3! We’ll get a better contract together.”

Delusional

Some people are ignorant of inflation, they think bargained should take less of a raise than the inflationary rise in CPI. They also would like bargained to pay more for their benefits while also going in reverse and moving work from the top titles to lower paid title, how about management leading the way. This isn’t the nineties, wages and benefits need to keep up with inflation. Strike if they won’t bargain in good faith but wait on D3!

Good try trolls!

Bonuses are temporary, raises are forever, bunch of Poindexter’s. A 4% or more raise compounded over a career or even a few years is way more money than a few months of striking. That’s not counting regressive proposals or higher deductibles or out of pocket expenses. Give us a break! I’m an outside tech and most of the guys I work with either graduated from technical school or college so, enough of your condescending remarks. We are paid accordingly for the education, training and skills we bring to the table. High Inflation, the last 4 years has changed the dynamic for everyone and the standard of living is in reverse. It hasn’t slowed the execs compensation packages being enriched more each year.

We can also start posting about the chair sitters and Costco runners and their compensation packages including, bonuses. I’m sure a lot of people would die to have your position even with RTO or relocating, for what you are earning. Reading a few manuals and specializing on a few pieces of equipment or managing direct reports while, doing a bunch of busy work and making sure you get green on the dashboard vs treating your employees well or taking care of your customers, dashboard comes before anything because it’s directly tied to bonuses. Could go on and on for days but bargained work isn’t a manufacturing or unskilled labor position. Go read some job descriptions and expectations, educate yourself. I know just for an ET the job description is 15 pages long, that’s not including all the training and changes one has to adapt to constantly.

Dear Union members, I respectfully ask you reconsider striking at this moment.

Stankey doesn’t care about the customers or You for that matter.
You’ll be out a very long time if you walk.

You won’t make up lost pay over this

This poster makes sense and cents $$$

As management, I don’t want to do your work. You are great at what you do!!

I had trouble with my CP training—- I’m out of shape!!!

Please reconsider walking off the job if these are the sticking points.

Keep your jobs!!!

“Does anyone really give a rip about MLK pay? Like this is some major accomplishment? Who are the children negotiating all of this? I don’t see a yes to strike vote happening just based on scope of work, and I don’t see MLK pay as some big feather in the cap of either side. The pay raise is a slap in the face and the company knows it, but the union talking the way they are seems more like they want the extra dues. The company would love to take the bonus money from a strike. Has anyone done the math on what the workers get on the back end of a strike compared to what it will cost? Grab a calculator. Even if you got 4% vs 2, if your losses on the front end are higher due to an extended strike, what did you gain? Clout? Take the raise, deal with the scope of work, keep the healthcare costs down and leave sick time alone. It’s really not that hard.”

There isn't enough money to pay what the union is asking for. There never is.

  1. 25% across 4 years seems reasonable and is more than a lot of management personnel will get over the next few years for sure. If you’re a group 1 core tech in the West (most outside and inside techs are group 1 or close except for prem techs) and currently average $43.26/hr or $90,000/yr, that moves you to $47.85/hr by the end of the agreeement or $99,536/y and that’s with zero overtime. In other words, Specials, DEG, CO , Power, Core I&M, C&E Splicing techs and center testing techs would all be cracking $100,000/yr by 2028.
