At&t Union Agreement

Some general information is useful. In July, the company unilaterally imposed caps across the country on commissions, including in the “orange” footprint. The company made the changes in orange, although the union warned not to make unilateral changes to the commissions. Since we are in the middle of negotiations with the company in the . Orange Footprint, this unilateral and negative change without negotiations was a violation of the federal labor law. The union then filed a charge of unfair labour practices with the National Labour Relations Board. The Commission is actively investigating this issue.
