AT&T Mobility, Communications Workers of America Extend Orange Contract, Continue Negotiations

AT&T (NYSE: T) today announced that while AT&T Mobility did not reach a settlement with the Communications Workers of America by the 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time Feb. 9 expiration of the Mobility "Orange" contract, the company and union have agreed to an extension of the contract and negotiations are continuing.

The contract covers more than 20,000 AT&T Mobility employees in CWA Districts 1, 2-13, 4, 7, and 9 – AT&T Mobility's Orange unit.

The contract covers wages, pension, work rules and disability. CWA members in October ratified a separate four-year benefit agreement for all CWA-bargained Mobility employees nationwide covering health care and other benefits.

The ongoing negotiations reflect the spirit of the longstanding relationship between the company and the union.
