AT&T, Union Remain in Talks

Four of telecom’s labor agreements with CWA have expired.

AT&T Inc., the largest U.S. phone company, failed to reach agreement to renew four contracts with one of its unions and said it will extend negotiations to reach a deal.

AT&T, based in Dallas, and the Communications Workers of America didn’t agree before the expiration of the East, Legacy T, Midwest and West contracts, the carrier said in a statement.

Current Contracts

Last August, CWA called an end to a two-week strike by 35,000 members at Verizon and Verizon Wireless, when the companies agreed to extend the workers’ current contracts and resume bargaining. Verizon and Verizon Wireless, the unit it co-owns with Vodafone Group Plc, and the union are yet to reach a new agreement.
