CWA-AT$T Legacy T Bargaining Report #16

If the Company thinks this is movement in the right direction, they better think again. Instead of their original demand of NO paid illness days, their feeble attempt at compromise is to give no paid sick days to any new hire or current employee with under 3 years service. For those current employees with over 3 years service, they would get paid only AFTER the third consecutive day out sick, with a maximum of 3 paid sick days a year. This proposal punishes everyone, no matter how good their absence record is. Their next grand compromise was to change their demand of NO double time to double time only after 16 overtime hours. That’s another proposal that doesn’t come close to a just solution, especially since so many of our members are on forced overtime. NO WAY are these proposals we can live with.
