A West Coast Strike
News from the CWA Communications Dept; Across California and Nevada, CWA members at AT&T West were off the job for two days this week in an unfair labor practice strike. So far, the National Labor Relations Board has issued a complaint against AT&T West in response to two unfair labor practice charges filed, and is reviewing several other charges. "Contract negotiations are never easy, but when AT&T violates the law, the process really can't work," said CWA's Jim Weitkamp. CWA represents about 18,000 AT&T West workers. About 3,200 members of CWA Local 1298 in Connecticut who work at AT&T East also engaged in a two-day unfair labor practice strike.
