ACROSS MISSISSIPPI —AT&T Mobility has reached a tentative agreement with the Communications Workers of America in Mobility Southeast contract negotiations.
The four-year agreement, which will be submitted to the union’s membership for a ratification vote in coming days, covers more than 11,500 AT&T Mobility employees in CWA District 3 — the Southeast Region, which includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and St. Croix, USVI.
The agreement covers wages, pension, work rules and disability benefits. CWA members in October 2012 ratified a separate four-year benefit agreement for all CWA-bargained Mobility employees nationwide covering health care and certain other benefits.
AT&T Mobility said it would not comment on details of the tentative agreement until it has been presented by leadership to the members for a vote.
