AT&T reaches agreement with unionMarch 8, 2013 @ 2:41 pm
DALLAS (AP) - AT&T Mobility has reached a tentative agreement with a union representing more than 20,000 employees across the country.
The company said Friday that the agreement includes general wage increases in each year of the four-year contract and maintains pensions for all employees, plus retirement savings plans, with no changes. Health care and other benefits are bargained separately.
AT&T's contract with the Communications Workers of America covers employees across much of the country. It will be submitted to the CWA's membership for a ratification vote in coming days.
Shares of AT&T Inc. rose 29 cents to close at $36.68.
