Union members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) have authorized a strike against AT&T Mobility. The authorization covers 20,000 workers, whose current contract expires at midnight on February 7th. The authorization does not mean a strike is imminent. In fact, strike authorizations are often part of the bargaining process. “For AT&T Mobility members, a critical bargaining goal is to build a career path and opportunity for jobs within the industry, and to stabilize incomes,” said CWA Executive Vice President Annie Hill in a union statement. AT&T and the CWA will continue to negotiate a deal, probably up until the last minute. If negotiations fail, the president of the CWA will set a strike date. If a strike occurs, it will only affect AT&T’s wireless operations. Look out you heavy iPhone users!
