Bargaining team asks A T&T for contract extension, no plans for strike


There are currently no plans for a strike as A T&T union workers wait to hear back from the company in contract negotiations.

The Communications Workers of America bargaining team has asked A T&T for a 30 day extension of the current contract.

The union represents more than 20,000 members, including workers at call centers in Springfield and Rantoul plus 72 sales store locations, network operations and support personnel throughout Illinois.

Executive Vice President Dena Warren says the company has not replied to the bargaining team's request for a 30 day extension.
