AT&T Retail Workers Set to Strike Friday May 19, 2017 at 3PM
POSTED 05/18/17 12:09PM

40,000 workers at AT&T just announced that they will walk off the job for three days starting Friday at 3pm ET/Noon PT if they haven't won a fair union contract by then. Workers have been at the bargaining table for months fighting for good jobs against a company dead set on lining its pockets at the expense of the workers who make them billions. This weekend we are sending AT&T a message that we are united and ready to fight.

This will be the biggest strike in the United States since Verizon workers walked out last year, and may be the biggest strike of retail workers at a national company in U.S. history. The strike would include 21,000 retail and call center workers at AT&T Wireless across the country, and 19,000 AT&T West landline and DIRECTV workers in California and Nevada, along with landline workers in Connecticut.
