Unfair Labor Practice Strikes at AT&T Southeast
Friday, 04 September 2015

CWA locals representing AT&T workers in two District 3 locations held unfair labor practices strikes last week. Both locals reported a successful resolution of issues that provoked the strikes.



In New Orleans, members of CWA Local 3410 walked out on Aug. 28 to protest the action of an AT&T manager, Eric Vance, who struck a local union officer on an informational picket line with his company vehicle. Vance purposely gunned his engine and drove carelessly through a peaceful picket line, the local said.

It wasn't the first time that Vance has been the focus of an unfair labor practice, the local noted. So when AT&T management again refused to address Vance's outrageous actions, members decided they had enough and walked off the job in protest.

As a result of the ULP strike, that manager has been transferred.

In a separate incident in Pensacola, Fla., members of CWA Local 3109 began an unfair labor practice strike at 7 a.m. on Aug. 28, following illegal threats made by management to a union member.

A manager told a CWA member that if he sought union representation for a performance warning, he would suffer more serious consequences and a longer period of disciplinary action.

This obvious unfair labor practice ended with the manager rescinding his warning altogether and writing a letter of apology to the member and the local.
