Uh oh, this is not good for AT&T Mobility customers. Benefits and compensation are two very important things to anyone in the work force, and if the latest news coming through the wire comes to fruition, AT&T's wireless sales representatives are set to strike on February 8th after what is described as the 'Mobility "Orange" contract' expires. CWA's website is gearing up for the potential activity on the 8th, with the announcement that "picket signs are being sent out to every CWA Local with Mobility members as the February 7th expiration date approaches. With little progress at the bargaining table, every Local must be ready to walk, if necessary, to get some RESPECT from AT&T Mobility."
Those are fightin' words. We assume that indirect locations and national retailers will still provide AT&T sales, but should the strike occur, it will certainly place a nice dent in AT&T's wireless sales in a quarter that is already known to be a slow one. More information on the strike can be found at CWA's website.
