IBEW Members Ratify Agreement with AT&T
Friday May 26, 2017 - 5:00pm (C.D.T.) – The membership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council T-3 (IBEW SCT-3) employed by AT&T have voted to accept the tentative agreement that was reached on April 26, 2017. The new five-year agreement covers approximately 5,000 employees working for the company nationwide primarily in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. The contract will take effect June 25, 2017.
Since the tentative agreement was announced, members of the IBEW attended meetings and received communications outlining the agreement. They were allowed the opportunity to ask questions about the changes to their contract and they voted by secret ballot to accept the agreement. IBEW members covered by the new pact will receive yearly basic weekly wage rate increases of 3.0%, 2.5%, 3.0%, 2.25% and 2.5% as well as a $1000 signing bonus along with pension increases and substantial 401K improvements.
