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.
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.
We held our first effects bargaining session with the Company for members of all bargaining units at Lumen on November 2, 2021, regarding the recently announced COVID Vaccine mandate.
Please find attached the DIRECTV Bargaining Report #1.
Please join us for an important Contract Explanation and Ratification Vote on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. at the Atrium Hotel, 4600 West Airport Freeway, Irving, Texas.
