AT&T workers are on strike over contract negotiations

Communication Workers of America on strike over contract negotiations

DULUTH, Minn. – AT&T workers across the country are striking this weekend. Members of the Communications Workers of America union walked off the job and onto the picket lines as part of a three–day strike. The CWA’s contract with at&t expired in February.

“So far, there’s been almost no movement on that,” CWA member and AT&T employee Whitney Horky said. “So that is the purpose of going on strike this weekend – to say, we’re serious about this, and we’re ready to an ongoing economic strike if we need to.”

Around 40,000 workers are participating in the strike.
