AT&T Inc. and the Communications Workers of America reached three tentative agreements covering about 2,000 former DIRECTV employees in five call centers.
The deals cover employees who were working at DIRECTV call centers in Eden Prairie, Minn.; Englewood, Colo.; Huntington, W. Va.; Huntsville, Ala.; and Tulsa, Okla. The agreements will place the employees in three existing labor contracts, the company said Dec. 19.
The former DIRECTV employees joined AT&T as part of its acquisition of DIRECTV in July 2015. AT&T has now reached nine agreements with CWA and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, six of which have been ratified.
