Thread regarding AT&T layoffs

San Antonio union meeting

What a bunch of waste of time. Half of the answers were still not answered and of course they gave us all the stuff we wanted to hear. If you are going to continue the work then I would strongly suggest that you not pay union dues. Again they made decisions for us without getting our input so why should we support them. CANCELLING MY DUES ONCE I’M ON THE NEW CONTRACT!!!!

The union protects then underperformers. Gets you paid even though you don't do too much.

The leaders of the union only take care of themselves.

Go here and search for your union and pull up the yearly financial forms and see what your elected local officers (it shows there name and what they were paid out) are paying themselves and decide if it's worth it or not to stay in the union. Some locals are paying the officers 100% of the dues coming in back to themselves so they can go out on loan or claim union time so they do not have to work.

One of the few good things to come out of this is it will make the call center reps have more leverage when it comes to contract negotiations. It will be harder for the company to just transfer the work out to another office if everyone is on strike.

if you are a dues paying member in any district and your jobs are being outsourced and the union is not responding. You definitely need to be asking to see the financial report of your union and know where your money is going. When jobs are going out the door and you see the union president driving $100k cars what are they doing for you or are they only doing things for themselves?

Lmao you have a union person in here actually defending their bogus decision. Stop being a boot li---r and stand up for yourself. You’re probably one of those union reps that doesn’t even work or take calls but sit in the union hall and pretend to fight for us

Where do you work? People are forced to relocate and are surplussed ALL the time while being part of the union. Some union members have been surplussed during active contract negotiations.
“rather than have AT&T get rid of you slowly year after year,” this is happening company wide anyway. So your point is ?

With Union: Kept your job, kept your pay, ability to stay in San Antonio, still have a pension, still have vacation time, still have a 401k plan, still have holidays, still have FHH, DHH and EWP's, Still have 10 days sick time.

Without Union: Follow the work to another city and uproot your family, lose your job entirely, lose your pay, lose your retirement if you haven't met your 75 rule. But lets talk about the positive, you wont have to pay Union dues because you don't have a job. To suggest, you would rather stop paying dues because the Union took the difficult decision of negotiating what they did rather than have AT&T get rid of you slowly year after year, is the stupidest comment I have heard. My understanding is YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN SLOWLY DRAGGED THROUGH AN ACTUAL LAYOFF, REPEAT..... AN ACTUAL LAYOFF. NO JOB, NO SAME PAY. YOU GET IT?? SOME OF YOU MAY NOT LIKE THIS BUT THE OTHER OPTION WAS A SLOW PAINFUL LAYOFF OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS. IM SORRY, BUT IT IS TIME TO BE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE AND TO A UNION THAT HAS FOUGHT FOR DECADES FOR YOU

What happened with post about CWA members being forced to Purple contract? Are those members that were a part of the core contract? If so what titles?

Post ID: @wwn+1sbwovuV

Back when I was occupational, CWA wouldn't lift a finger to help pay for my MCSE and CCSA certifications that AT&T tuition assistance didn't cover, but the union had posters all over the building touting their education benefits for members. Couldn't get a call back, and the rep was never in his office. Paid my union dues like everyone else, but received nothing but grief from senior employees for being low man on the totem pole. Leaving the union for management was a no-brainer. At least I could stand on my own merits, instead of being surplussed simply because I had fewer years than the whales. CWA, and most unions for that matter, happily collect your dues from each paycheck, and guess what? You'll never see any benefit from what you pay in, and will get laid off like everyone else when the axe swings low.

Are you all just realizing that unions are a for profit organization? They will do very little to represent their members, it's all about personal agenda items. Unions are a waste of money.

Post ID: @xjk+1sbwovuV

The only reason the union agreed to this horrible deal is to keep as many employees on payroll so they can get their union dues. Around 800 service reps were affected in the quit or move to purple mobility contract. The union would have lost alot if money we would have just gotten surplused. Nothing ever good happens to those who follow the job.

The union is ridiculous. The little guy at the end had the nerve to tell us that we should show up more to the meetings, we showed up because you guys failed us and we want answers. You guys failed to provide us answers. We pay union dues for you to support us and this is the thanks we get? I'm not paying union a single penny once I'm on the new contract

Yeah the union is $£|+! Completed the contract in February didn’t say a word. Yet, I remember shortly before returning to the office they wanted us to fill out a survey regarding negotiations. WHAT HAPPENED THIS TIME??! They Smile in our face /take our money—-Backstabbers!

What do you except when the union works with AT&T over its own employees? The union is only going to look out for themselves and say that they have you in mind for their best interests. You guys should stand up for yourselves and avoid paying any union dues
