USA based AT&T says that it has reached a tentative agreement with the Communications Workers of America union (CWA) in contract negotiations covering more than 20,000 AT&T Mobility employees in 36 states and the District of Columbia.
The four-year agreement covers Mobility employees generally in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Mountain States and West Coast.
The agreement, which is subject to ratification, covers wages, pension, disability and work rules. Health care and other benefits are bargained separately. CWA members in October ratified a separate four-year benefit agreement for all CWA-bargained Mobility employees nationwide.
AT&T added that it will not comment on details of the agreement until it has been presented to members by their leadership.
