UPDATE on Mitigated Prem Tech Reduction Discussions
Updated On: Feb 23, 2018

February 23, 2018

As the result of many conversations between IBEW 21 representatives and AT&T’s Labor Relations Department, on February 14, 2018 the contemplated layoff of IBEW 21 Premises Technicians was stopped.  Since then talks on the implementation of alternatives have taken place. 

To avoid the contemplated layoff, Premises Technicians are being afforded the opportunity to voluntarily apply for open positions in the IBEW Transfer Plan (NTP) and are also being offered a voluntary layoff allowance for those Premises Technicians who want to leave AT&T.

National Transfer Plan

All IBEW 21 Premises Technicians are eligible to use the IBEW National Transfer Plan (NTP) to apply for open positions.  These IBEW SCT-3 positions were bargained in the 2016 IBEW “out of region” agreement. The out of region states are: Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Iowa, Idaho, Minnesota, Nebraska, Montana, Pennsylvania North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Positions may be available in some of those states.  You can use the information in the NTP to find which states have open positions.

You must submit your NTP application by March 16, 2018, 5:00 pm CST.

Premises Technicians who are offered and accept a Premises Technician job through the NTP on or before March 16, 2018, 5:00 pm CST may be eligible to receive a $5000 relocation allowance paid in two increments, $2500 after reporting to the new location and $2500 paid after six months of employment at the new location.

The relocation allowance will be paid at the discretion of the Company on a case-by-case basis dependent upon the number and location of NTP applicants. Normal NTP process rules apply for placement.

AT&T management will review all volunteers and discuss with IBEW 21 representatives which volunteers will be accepted. Management may require a volunteer to be backfilled through force adjustment before being accepted.

Voluntary Layoff Allowance

Premises Technicians can volunteer to leave the Company with a layoff allowance in accordance with Article 7.04 of Appendix C.

Premises Technicians need to contact their manager to complete a required Voluntary Layoff Request.  It must be completed by Thursday, March 1, 2018, 5:00 pm CST. 

Your decision to leave the payroll is irrevocable after Thursday, March 1, 2018, 5:00 pm CST.

There is no guarantee that all volunteers will be approved.

If accepted your last day on payroll will be Monday, March 5, 2018.

Please note that Appendix C Article 7.04 was changed during 2017 bargaining; additional allowances for years of service were added.  See change here (Slide 66).

0 – 12 months layoff allowance equals one week of pay.
13- 24 months layoff allowance equals two weeks of pay.
25- 47 months layoff allowance equals three weeks of pay.
48 – 71 months layoff allowance equals four weeks of pay.
72 – 95 months layoff allowance equals five weeks of pay.
96 or more months layoff allowance equals six weeks of pay.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Chief Steward or Business Representative.  Their information can be found here.
