DALLAS — AT&T Inc. announced that core wireline employees in its Southeast Region (CWA District 3) have voted to ratify a three-year agreement with the Communications Workers of America (CWA).

The agreement covers about 30,000 CWA members in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The contract expired Aug. 8, 2009, and employees have worked under the terms of the expired contract while negotiations continued.

Six of the seven bargaining units, representing nearly 97 percent of the approximately 120,000 employees covered under AT&T’s core wireline contracts, now have ratified agreements.

In addition to the Southeast Region agreement, agreements between AT&T and the CWA have been ratified in AT&T’s Midwest, West and Southwest regions as well as with AT&T Corp., which covers employees across the country.

An agreement between AT&T and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has also been ratified.

CWA District 1 – AT&T’s East Region, covering employees in Connecticut – is the only region that is yet to reach an agreement. Employees there continue to work under the terms of the expired contract.

The agreement ratified by CWA membership is a revised agreement that was reached after a previous tentative agreement failed to ratify.
