Monday morning is going to be difficult for AT&T users across the country. There are reports of approximately 21,000 employees at the wireless network that plan on walking off the job Monday morning.
The Communication Workers of America Union let AT&T know 72-hours in advance of the possibility of a walk-out.
The labor contract has been in the works since February, but no resolution has been made.
When asked about the situation, the Vice President of the Communications Workers of America, Dennis Trainor, said that AT&T is undermining good jobs and that “we’ll strike if necessary.”
This is not the first time the employees had to resort to these measures to get proper treatment when it comes to their contracts.
In March, 17,000 workers had to go on strike because the company did not “bargain fairly.”
The Communications Workers of America union gave the company 72-hours notice Friday of a possible walk out.
CWA members have been working on a rolling extension of their previous labor contract since early February. They have yet to strike a deal with AT&T. “We have given AT&T every opportunity to show their commitment to finding common ground and a fair contract,” said Dennis Trainor, vice president of CWA District 1. “Time is running out for AT&T to stop undermining good jobs, quality customer service and its long-term success. The pieces are all in place now, and we’ll strike if necessary.”
