Send A Letter To President Obama Today!SAMPLE LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA:(From CWA Local 2252)
I respectfully support all your initiatives in regards to the Economic Stimulus Package. To that end, I would like to make you aware of a situation that is attempting to undermine what you are trying to accomplish. On Feb. 24, 2009 at&t and the Communications Workers of America started Contract negotiations affecting 180,000 employees across the USA, and probably twice as many retiree's. There are 5 separate contracts that expired April 4, 2009, with a 6th expiring in August 2009. AT&T is trying to undo all that has been accomplished in negotiations over the last 50 years.
Of paramount concern is the fact that as of this date, at&t intends to stop paying for retiree health care. Thus far they have refused to even discuss retiree health care. In addition at&t intends to triple current employee's health care costs. All this, despite the fact that at&t profited 12.8 billion dollars last year with revenues of 122 billion dollars. C
