CWA Union Strike Shuts down Stores, Push for Fair Contract Escalates

Weekend Labor ACTIONS! New Mexico Actions to Support CWA STRIKE!

Contact CWA Robert Gonzalez for info on where the NM Pickets are hot today and tomorrow. 505-440-0587

AT&T workers who are members of Communications Workers of America (CWA) walked off the job yesterday, protesting AT&T’s failure to present serious proposals that invest in good jobs with a future. During the three-day strike this weekend, a majority of AT&T wireless, wireline and DIRECTV workers fighting for their contracts are expected to be on strike.

"We're walking off the job today because AT&T has every means available to support its core workforce and the customers who help make them $1 billion a month in profits, but chooses to undercut us at every turn," James Stiffey, an AT&T wireless worker from Pittsburgh, said in a statement distributed by the union. "As a retail worker, I know that my store and many others across the country could close and disrupt service, but our strike is about demanding conditions that allow us to provide better service for customers too."
