AT&T Announces Premises Technician Voluntary Leave Offer
07/16/20 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
Today AT&T announced they are seeking a voluntary reduction in the number of Premises Technicians they employ.  The company is offering an additional $5,000 to the layoff allowance as an incentive for Premises Technicians in select locations to leave the company. While jobs cuts are always a difficult pill to swallow the good news is that all of the employees who are leaving AT&T are doing it on their own terms. These members saved the jobs of hundreds of their Sisters and Brothers who were not ready to be left jobless. They also allowed other employees to move into new positions. While no one can guarantee what may happen in the future, today we can once again breathe a sigh of relief and then lace up our boots and continue to address the many questions and concerns created by today’s announcement.
