The members of CWA District 9 voted on May 29 to ratify the Tentative Agreement between AT&T Core West (wireline) and the Communications Workers of America by a yes vote of 69.99% of the ballots received.
H.R. 6800, the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act, includes an emergency workplace infectious disease standard; gives aid for state and local governments, public schools, the U.S. Postal Service, and pension funding relief; keeps workers on payrolls to avoid mass layoffs; extends unemployment insurance; provides more direct payments to working people; extends health care coverage; provides housing and food benefits; and much more.
CWA members should engage in the opportunity to exercise their votes as shareholders, helping shape the direction of the company and establishing principles that will govern the company. CWA has prepared this shareholders’ voting guide to offer some insight into the shareholder proposals in AT&T’s 2020 proxy statement.
