IBEW - AT&T DIRECTV Call Center Tentative Agreement Highlights
Updated On: May 15, 2019

May 14, 2019

On Friday, May 10, 2019 the IBEW System Council T-3 (SCT-3) and AT&T/DIRECTV reached a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract covering employees working for the company in DIRECTV call centers. The new tentative agreement must be voted on and accepted by the members of the IBEW. 

The IBEW SCT-3 will present the contract to its members over the next few weeks through a series of meetings and other communications.  After reviewing the new contract we feel our members will agree with the officers and delegates of the IBEW SCT-3 and vote to accept the tentative agreement.

The highlights are as follows:

 

Wages

3.0% effective August 23, 2020

2.25% effective August 22, 2021

$750 Ratification Bonus Lump Sum Payment

New Customer Care and Customer Solutions Associate Wage Schedules

In addition, a new higher wage schedule for Customer Care Associate and Customer Solutions Associate is being established at all steps.  When combined with the general wage increase above, the cumulative raise at top rate is nearly 12%.  For employees in wage progression, the wage increase could total as much as 39% during the term of the contract.

The new wage scales can be found by clicking here.
