CWA: AT&T Will Return 5,000 Jobs to U.S. on Completion of AT&T/T-Mobile Merger
Posted: 31-Aug-2011 [Source: CWA]

[CWA comments on AT&T's announcement it will bring back 5,000 jobs to the U.S. if its merger with T-Mobile USA is approved.]

Washington -- AT&T’s announcement that it will bring back a net 5,000 quality wireless jobs to the United States following the completion of its merger with T-Mobile USA is very good news.

“These jobs will provide quality wages and benefits and good working conditions for U.S. workers -- exactly what's needed to help turn around our struggling economy. Instead of sitting on more than $2 trillion in assets and sending jobs overseas while millions of Americans are out of work, working people are looking for U.S. employers to follow AT&T's lead. If more employers took this kind of action, we could begin to move our economy forward and strengthen the middle class,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

AT&T’s commitment that the T-Mobile merger will not result in any job losses for current call center workers at AT&T Mobility or T-Mobile USA is more evidence of the kind of corporate responsibility we need here in the United States, Trumka said.

CWA President Larry Cohen pointed out that “cuts in wages, benefits, and jobs have become the new normal in America, so that when a company like AT&T takes action to bring back quality jobs, it’s big news.”

In addition to restoring a net 5,000 quality jobs and a commitment that no job losses will occur for U.S. call center workers at either company, the merger has additional positive gains for workers, consumers, communities and the industry.

1 It will accelerate the buildout of high-speed wireless broadband to 97 percent of the nation, enabling an additional 55 million people, especially in rural and underserved areas, to share in the benefits of Internet technology.

2 AT&T will develop T-Mobile’s assets and offer T-Mobile customers the latest in technology.

3 AT&T and T-Mobile utilize compatible technologies.

4 AT&T has a demonstrated commitment to workers’ rights, supporting management neutrality that enables workers to make a free and fair choice about union representation and bargaining rights.

CWA represents 700,000 workers in telecommunications, media, airlines, public service and health care and manufacturing, including 160,000 at AT&T.
