Contracts Expire at AT&T SE
Workers Will Stay on the Job and Continue the Fight for a Fair Contract
Atlanta – The 28,000 workers at AT&T Southeast, members of the Communications Workers of America, will work without a contract as their collective bargaining agreement expired at midnight tonight.

“We’re going to keep our fight for a fair contract going while we stay on the job,” said CWA District 3 Vice President Richard Honeycutt. “For weeks we have pressed AT&T Southeast to get serious about bargaining and to get off its outrageous demands that will hurt workers, their families and communities. We’re ready to bargain for a fair agreement, but we need AT&T Southeast to be ready to do the same.”

AT&T Southeast is a very profitable company and earned $6.5 billion in profits in 2014. Yet after weeks of negotiations, the CWA bargaining team reports that AT&T Southeast management continues to demand concessions in job security, health care, and working conditions, including a demand for excessive forced overtime by workers.

“Our members showed their determination to get a fair contract with 96% voting to authorize a strike if necessary. That remains an option. For now, we’ll be on the job, without our contract, but providing the quality service customers deserve,” Honeycutt said.

The negotiations cover workers at AT&T Southeast, AT&T Utility Operations and BellSouth Billing. A separate contract that covers workers at YP Holdings has been extended while negotiations continue.
CWA Local 3611 lost a long time member, supporter and friend when Gary Cappy died August 29. He and his wife, Miriam Melendez have run Grass Roots Press, a Union print shop here in Raleigh, and have done much of the printing for the Local over the years, including the monthly newsletter. Gary spent his life devoted to social justice activities. He worked with the UFW on the grape boycott in Pittsburgh and later moved to Bakersfield, CA to work with Cesar Chavez. It was there that he learned the printing trade. He met his wife, Miriam, in New York while working in a print shop for NYPIRG. They opened Grass Roots Press in Raleigh in 1988. As his obituary in the News and Observer says, "Gary always felt he could support the underdog through his printing. He was also a proud union member of CWA Local 3611."
He will truly be missed by his brothers and sister at Local 3611. A celebration of Gary's life will take place on Saturday, Sept. 12 at Edenton Street United Methodist Church, 228 W. Edenton St., Raleigh, beginning at 2 pm.
