On Friday, AT&T announced the company is going to offer a General SIPP to employees working in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. If you are a Telecommunication Specialist – TFS, Customer Systems Technician – TFS - Business Services or a Customer Systems Technician – TFS. The deadline to turn in your paperwork to accept a General SIPP is 5 p.m. (CST) Friday, June 29, 2018.


Friday, June 15, 2018 (11:00 a.m. CST) – Today AT&T officials announced the company is going to surplus four employees in Illinois and offer a General SIPP to employees working in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. The announcement will affect employees represented IBEW21. Prior to the announcement, AT&T contemplated making deep cuts in the TFS, U-Verse and Central Office organizations. With the Time Warner merger being approved your Union leadership saw an opportunity to lessen the impact of the pending announcement and entered into both formal and informal conversations regarding possible scenarios and their effects. As a result hundreds of jobs were taken off of the chopping block. We are continuing to work to protect as many jobs for as long as we can in the rapidly changing industry in which we work.


On Sunday, June 24, 2018 wage increases for our members working at AT&T go into effect.  Since the signing of the contract members have asked, “Where are the AT&T contract books?” This has been answered numerous times at union meetings, in Frontline and by your Officers, Chief Stewards and Business Representatives. The contract has not been printed as required by AT&T because in the final proof your Union Representatives found errors made by AT&T and the company still needs to correct them. Some of the errors are: missing commas, misspellings, corporate name changes, and other grammatical errors. It is important to understand AT&T's errors do not affect the substance of the contract. The contract is in full effect. We have a binding collective bargaining agreement.
