As 21,000 AT&T workers prepare for potential nationwide strike, New Report Pulls Back the Curtain on AT&T’s Vast Network of Offshored Call Centers.

Analysis reveals that workers and customers are paying the price for the company’s race to the bottom, with California communities among the hardest hit by job cuts.

WASHINGTON — As AT&T faces growing pressure on multiple fronts – from Wall Street investors to frontline workers, a new report released today by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) provides an unprecedented window into the company’s sprawling web of 38 third-party call centers in eight countries that are driving a race to the bottom for low wages and compromising quality service for millions of AT&T customers.

This week, AT&T workers and CWA representatives are meeting with call center vendor employees in the Dominican Republic to learn more about what has happened to the jobs AT&T has shipped overseas and the anti-union backlash facing Dominican workers who attempt to improve conditions. During the Verizon strike last year, CWA representatives uncovered a massive offshoring operation in the Philippines, and were confronted by armed security while seeking a meeting with Verizon management.

In California, the company has shut down five call centers since 2011, resulting in the loss of nearly 1,000 middle-class jobs across communities such as:
• Anaheim
• Bakersfield
• Atwater
• Sacramento
• Oakland

The CWA AT&T Contract expires on April 9, 2016. We hope that negotiations prove fruitful and our Bargaining Team reaches a fair and just settlement by the deadline. However, being prepared is crucial should the company force us out on strike.

CWA Local 9415 has been busy preparing for any possibilities that may result from the 2016 negotiations. We are prepared to assist everyone who supports our efforts to achieve a fair and just contract. This does not mean that we expect to go on strike - rather, it means we stand prepared to assist the efforts for workplace justice.
