SUMMARY OF AGREEMENT (PLEASE READ FIRST)

Link to individual temporary agreements

November 22, 2016

Local 2201 is happy to announce that we have reached an tentative agreement on a Local contract with American Red Cross.  This is a first agreement and builds on much of the economic benefits bargained in the National Addendum.  A summary of the agreement will be sent out shortly.  This agreement must still be ratified by the members and plans for that vote are being finalized now.  The Local Officers and bargaining team (Tony Devault, Jim Boggs, Deneen Bannister) would like to thank everyone who worked long and hard to reach this agreement after almost a year of bargaining.  Without all of you this would not have been possible.

CWA: It’s Time for AT&T to End its Demands for Health Care Cuts at Mobility

Washington, D.C. -- CWA’s AT&T Mobility bargaining team is working to negotiate a new national bargained benefit plan covering 45,000 AT&T Mobility workers.

CWA members voted down an earlier tentative agreement, and CWA negotiators are meeting with the company team to bargain improvements to the last proposal. The national benefits agreement covers health care, life insurance, tuition assistance, adoption assistance and other benefits. Wages and working conditions are bargained separately at four units

Our goal remains to make healthcare more affordable and ensure that all Mobility members, no matter where they live and work, have access to a good provider network. CWA members at Mobility are mobilizing, standing up together at worksites and calling on the company to stop looking to cut workers’ health care benefits.       

Negotiations are continuing, and another package will be presented to the membership for a ratification vote.
