March 21, 2017 – Today the IBEW System Council T-3 (IBEW SCT-3) and AT&T agreed to begin “early bargaining" to renegotiate their collective bargaining agreement that is set to expire on June 24, 2017. The agreement covers employees working for the company across the United States with the majority working in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. Bargaining will officially open tomorrow March 22, 2017. These will be challenging negotiations. All IBEW members should be prepared to do their part to support their bargaining team. Updates on bargaining will only be released when necessary.
The Cards Cubs solidarity event that we had planned for May 13th has been CANCELED.
The Cards were unwilling to guarantee a fixed ticket price because of their dynamic pricing policy. Since our last discussion with the Cards they have increase their ticket prices as a result it is with great disappointment that we canceled this event.
