Bargaining

CWA has continued to meet with Frontier to bargain over the effects the Company’s planned COVID-19 vaccine mandate will have on our members.
In October 2021 Lumen notified CWA of their intent to mandate the COVID-19 vaccination for the unionized workforce.
As you are aware, during our last round of bargaining with AT&T over the issue of COVID-19 vaccination, an impasse was reached at the bargaining table. As a result, the Company implemented a last, best, final offer.

CWA continued bargaining with Frontier this week over the effects the Company’s planned COVID-19 vaccine mandate will have on our members.
We met with the Company today in regards to the Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccine mandate. The Company made some counter proposals and CWA is reviewing these proposals. The Company rejected the proposals that CWA presented at last week’s bargaining session.
Bargaining continued last week between the CWA and DIRECTV committees. The Union Bargaining Team continues to wait for DIRECTV to respond to a number of information requests submitted by the union team over the last couple of weeks.
Since we transitioned from effects bargaining with AT&T we’ve been meeting for several weeks with DirecTV in an attempt to consolidate 10 different contracts (AT&T and Mobility) into one.
On August 26, 2021, AT&T informed the Communications Workers of America (CWA) that it intended to implement a COVID-19 Vaccination Policy requiring all Wireline employees represented by CWA in Districts 3, 4, 6, 9 & CWA T&T, be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment. 
As previously reported, the CWA bargaining committee has passed numerous proposals and counter proposals across the bargaining table relative to AT&T's plans to implement a rigid COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.  The ball remains in the company's court as the Union committee continues to await AT&T's response to our most recent bargaining demands.  At this time, there is nothing new to report.
