Thirty-Two Thousand CWA Workers At AT&T Could Hit Picket Lines

A contract covering 32,000 AT&T workers in the southeast region of the country is set to expire on Saturday. Jesse Russell has more.

The workers, represented by the Communication Workers of America union, could walk off the job is an agreement isnt reached. The contract specifically covers landline workers who are concerned about wages, job security, pensions, and health care. Those 32,000 workers will join 26,000 workers in Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, and Oklahoma who have been without a contract since April. In July the company was able to reach a deal with 20,000 workers in the Midwest.
