AT&T workers strike in Southeast more than 20,000 walk off the job

Saturday marked the first day of a strike day for many AT&T employees.

They cite "unfair labor practices during management negotiations" as the reason for the strike and workers across Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties woke early to hit the picket lines at 6:45 a.m. Those states comprise Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina and SC. CWA has local chapters located across Alabama.

"We're out on strike for unfair labor practices", said Joe Fields. Plus, employees from other locations across Kentucky.

Members of Communications Works of America (CWA) who work at AT&T Southeast have gone on strike.

"So, we absolutely don't want to see anybody without service, but AT&T needs to realize they need to come to the table and start bargaining with the company and send people that can make decisions to the bargaining table, and we'll go back to work".

"But we're out here with no contract right now so it leaves a lot of open ends that are kind of scary for the members".

AT&T says they are aware of the strike. They only want the contracts they have been handed in the past.

Three hundred AT&T repairmen, installation technicians, and construction workers in the capital city are on strike over what they are calling bad bargaining practices.

"They have not bargained in good faith by sending personnel who are not able to make decisions".

While on strike, Fields explained that some customers may experience response delays.

"We're baffled as to why union leadership would call one when we're offering terms that would help our employees - some of whom average from $121,000 to $134,000 in total compensation - be even better off", said AT&T spokesman Jim Kimberly. "We remain ready to sit down with union leaders to listen to their concerns and work with them on negotiating a new, improved contract for our employees". "If we can get someone from [AT&T headquarters] Dallas, not just a figurehead, but someone who can bargain in good faith, then all of this will go away".
