Former DIRECTV employees in five call centers approved three agreements between AT&T Inc. and the Communications Workers of America, the labor union representing them.
The agreements cover about 2,000 employees working in call centers in Eden Prairie, Minn.; Englewood, Colo.; Huntington, W. Va.; Huntsville, Ala.; and Tulsa, Okla., and placed the employees in three existing labor contracts, the company said Dec. 29.
The former DIRECTV employees joined AT&T as part of its acquisition of DIRECTV in July 2015. Union-represented former DIRECTV employees have now ratified nine agreements with the CWA and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in 2016. The nine agreements collectively cover nearly 8,000 former DIRECTV employees. Overall, AT&T has now entered into 15 ratified union agreements in 2016, covering about 61,000 union-represented employees.
