AT&T union workers start 3-day strike
BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – AT&T union workers started a strike around the country May 19, including some employees out at The Greene in Beavercreek.
About 40,000 communication workers in America said they were taking part in a 3-day strike to voice their concerns about fair pay, healthcare and outsourcing jobs overseas.
“This one is a 3-day strike to show the company that we are serious,” AT&T employee Aleesha Jones said. “That we are serious. That we are trying to get fair contract that works for everyone. After his, if they still do not negotiate, there will be a longer one in the future.”
Employees had been working without a contract, and the company failed to meet a 3 p.m. deadline presented by the union before the strike. No word was available about when negotiations would resume.
