Hey brothers and sisters,
Wireless workers are on the move. For the last few years we've faced serious attacks from our companies across the industry, with management doing everything from speeding up work and cutting our pay to messing with our schedules and tightening our attendance policies.
At AT&T we've started to fight back. After the first strike ever in the wireless industry and the largest retail strike in US history (!) we just won a contract which starts to reclaim some of the ground we've lost. But it took a huge amount of work to get us to this point. Even a couple of years ago we were organizing from scratch in our stores. We had to fight the company and fight to make our voices heard in our union.
We want to carry this forward and take it to the next level, and the best place to do that is at the LaborNotes conference in April. A group of rank-and-file AT&T wireless workers from Boston and a couple of non-union workers from another wireless company are trying to get there to connect with other folks doing the same kind of work. We want gain skills and knowledge that we need to help us build a stronger labor movement in wireless and defeat the company attack once and for all.
We have a vision for our workplaces and our union where the bosses know who really has the power, but we need your help achieving it. With travel, room and board we're not able to get to LaborNotes on retail wages. Anything you can give will help.
