Premise Technician Overtime Payment Issue Fixed
02/16/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
During 2017 bargaining improvements were made in the overtime language for Premise Technicians (Appendix C Article 5.03).  Personal Days and Floating Holidays are now included in the calculation of hours counted towards weekly overtime.  The language took effect on June 25, 2017 but the company’s payroll systems were not updated to include this provision. We are happy to announce the issue has been resolved. Premise Technicians who were affected will be receiving a retroactive overtime pay correction on either their February 16th or February 23rd check, depending on their pay cycle.

AT&T Contemplates Layoff
02/02/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
AT&T notified IBEW 21 they are contemplating a Premise Technician Layoff.  A layoff has not been announced.  We received this notification because of the letter that was negotiated during 2017 Bargaining stating in part ...that should the Company contemplate the layoff of Premises Technicians, they will continue to discuss whether some stand-alone DirecTV video work being performed by contractors in IBEW Local 21’s jurisdiction should be assigned to Appendix C. The Company will give the Union at least two weeks’ advance notice prior to the first such layoff announcement... Over the next 2 weeks discussions will take place to determine if the Company will reduce the number of contractors performing DirecTV work and if that reduction will eliminate or reduce the number of Prem Techs in AT&T’s contemplated layoff.
