Local 7704 would like to announce that on February 23, 2015 the American Arbitration Association certified that 50%+ of the AT&T Mobility Network employees in Utah indicated through their Consent Authorization cards that they desired to become represented by CWA. There are 18 workers in this group which includes workers who originally came from AT&T, Alltel and Cricket. They will become members of CWA Local 7704 Here in Salt Lake City. We would like to welcome these technicians to our Local. They are spread out throughout our state and you may see them in their trucks in the areas that you live. Be sure to welcome them and let them know that we are glad that are now part of our CWA family. .
All CWA MEMBERS WHO ARE IN THE MANDATORY UNIFORM PROGRAM
During 2012 bargaining with CenturyLink, CWA agreed to a Company proposal that would make uniforms for customer facing employees mandatory. In exchange the Union bargained for a CWA patch to be placed on the uniform. The premise for this is that the CWA Logo would be permanently placed on to the uniform shirt in a conspicuous place agreed to by the parties. We agreed at the bargaining table that CWA would purchase a patch that would be agreeable to both parties as well as would pay the cost of attaching the patch to the garments.
We have made arrangements with a Union vendor to provide iron-on patches. An online order form is posted on the CWA District 7 website (link below). Members wishing to order the patches can complete the form and the patches will be mailed directly to them at their home address.
The Union patch is the CWA logo (below) and should go on the right upper arm/sleeve of the uniform shirts.
Each member will be sent 5 patches for the uniform shirts by the union vendor.
BE SURE TO SHOW YOUR UNION PRIDE TO OUR CUSTOMERS SO THAT THEY WILL KNOW THAT THEIR SERVICE IS BEING PROVIDED BY A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL UNION MEMBER.
