Know Your Weingarten Rights!

If an employee has a reasonable belief that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what he or she says, the employee has the right to request union representation. Management is not required to inform the employee of his/her Weingarten rights; it is the employees responsibility to know and request.

"If this discussion can in any way lead to me being disciplined, I respectfully request union representation before I answer any questions"

Protect yourself! Learn it, use it!

A Message From The President

The Executive Board welcomes all Communications Workers of America, AFL,CIO Local 1120 members to our web page. The purpose of this web page is to provide a means of supplying information about our local and labor issues.    To all cwa local 1120 members. I want to thank all of my fellow union brothers and sisters for their commitment, and determination in keeping our local strong. Together we can overcome any challenge that we may face.

Frank J. Fauci Jr.
President, CWA Local 1120


 We must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.
Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote.”

Martin Luther King

AT&T Strike Looming
21,000 AT&T Mobility workers will be on strike Friday at 3pm ET/2pm CT/1pm MT/12 noon PT if we do not reach an agreement with the company. This is a short strike - we will walk off the job on Friday, May 19 at 3pm ET and return to work on Monday, May 22 for our scheduled shift. 
If a strike is called on Friday, you should leave work and report to your picket location immediately. To find your picket location, call your Local. 
Strike updates will be posted on UnityAtMobility.orgFacebookTwitter, and will be sent to you via text message and email.
This greedy company makes billions off our backs but continues to try and take from us - demanding more work for less and trying to replace us with low-wage workers at third party dealers and overseas. It’s time to show them we’re not going to sit back and take it.
This strike will affect AT&T Mobility workers covered under the Orange contract in 36 states and DC (click here for the list of states). 
Keep in touch with your Local for updates and information - they will provide you with picket locations, signs, and times.
?? For the latest developments, join us for an emergency Town Hall Call on Wednesday May 17 at 8pm ET7pm CT6pm MT5pm PT. Text the word Mobility to 69866 to RSVP to receive a text with dial-in information. 
Going on strike is a decision that is not made lightly. Your bargaining team has worked countless hours to negotiate in good faith to reach an agreement, but this company is refusing to budge on the issues that matter the most to us. The Union has also filed unfair labor practice charges at the National Labor Relations Board over AT&T's refusal to furnish information related to bargaining.  We need to make it clear to AT&T that this information is crucial to reaching a fair contract.
We are counting on every single member to be out on that picket line and demonstrate the commitment and solidarity that have been the values we’ve lived by throughout CWA’s proud history.


  • A fair wage increase that is enough to cover increased healthcare costs. AT&T offered a 2% increase per year – not enough to pay for the healthcare increases coming.
  • For RSCs: a higher base and/or a commission plan that AT&T can’t change every month. Commissions for Retail Sales Consultants have gone down steadily over the past 2 years. Commissions are wages and a mandatory subject of bargaining.
  • No increase to healthcare contributions in 2021.  Ending the 2-tier plan so new employees can afford healthcare.  AT&T wants us to pay even more!
  • Job security language. Company-owned retail stores are being replaced with authorized dealers in record numbers. Call centers are shrinking here and AT&T is outsourcing more of our work. Network contracting continues and we are being left out of the new technology.
  • We need AT&T to commit to keeping a ratio of COR stores to Authorized Retail.  So far, they say NO!
  • Outsourced calls must be returned to our call centers.
  • Absence and attendance policy.  AT&T wants to add “wait days” before we can be paid when we call in sick. They also want to drastically reduce sick days for new employees.
If something changes at the bargaining table, we will let you know. Until then, expect to strike on Friday. 
In solidarity,
Dennis G. Trainor
CWA District 1 Vice President
