AT&T Announces SIPP Offers
06/15/18 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
Friday, June 15, 2018 (11:00 a.m. CST) – Today AT&T officials announced the company is going to surplus four employees in Illinois and offer a General SIPP to employees working in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. The announcement will affect employees represented IBEW21. Prior to the announcement, AT&T contemplated making deep cuts in the TFS, U-Verse and Central Office organizations. With the Time Warner merger being approved your Union leadership saw an opportunity to lessen the impact of the pending announcement and entered into both formal and informal conversations regarding possible scenarios and their effects. As a result hundreds of jobs were taken off of the chopping block. We are continuing to work to protect as many jobs for as long as we can in the rapidly changing industry in which we work.
