I'm proud to report that not one of our AT&T Mobility members in Rochester crossed the picket lines during the Union's 3 day strike, which started on Friday. The Company, in response to the Union's picket, closed 100's of stores across the country and half of the stores here in Rochester. It was a great show of solidarity. If the Union decides to strike again, we must make the effort to get out there and support them. They are fighting the same issues that we all fight in the telecommunications industry; the offshoring of Union jobs, outsourcing to third party vendors, wages, and maintaining a quality, affordable health plan.
The Voluntary Severance offer for Linemen and Cable Splicers ends this Tuesday at Noon. We do have several takers and will update the tape this week.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union tape, the place where we fight for the respect you deserve.
