July 19, 2016 – Downers Grove, IL – Historic tentative agreements have been reached between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council T-3 and AT&T for their employees working at recently acquired DIRECTV. Earlier this year over 3000, AT&T DIRECTV employees joined the IBEW through a mutually agreed to card check neutrality process to bargain a first contract. These new national agreements protect employees who perform work in call centers and technicians who install satellite services. The contracts put into place wage progression scales, a comprehensive health care benefit package, a 401K plan with company matching, and a pension plan. The agreements also offer layoff protections and a very solid grievance and arbitration process.
