AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) Reports CWA-Represented Employees Vote To Approve West Wireline Deal


Leadership of the CWA has notified AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) that CWA-represented wireline personnel have voted to approve a four-year deal with Nevada Bell and Pacific Bell in the West region. The deal covers more than 17,000 DirecTV and wireline employees in Nevada and California.

The deal was made on July 14, 2017, after CWA-represented personnel had narrowly failed to approve a prior tentative deal that had been finalized in June.

The company has reached, and union-represented personnel have now voted to ratify, 31 different labor deals since 2015, covering nearly 145,000 employees. AT&T services and products are offered or provided by affiliates and subsidiaries of AT&T Inc. under the company’s brand.
