Last year, AT&T, the second largest wireless carrier in the U.S. and supporter of union workers, promised that it would not close call centers if the merger between AT&T & T-Mobile was approved. According to the Communications Workers of America (CWA), the merger would have created up to 96,000 jobs and provided economic opportunities for communities across the country. Instead, workers and families are suffering as a result of T-Mobile USA’s decision.
APALA commends and stands with CWA’s commitment to prevent the closures of call centers while ensuring union representation and safe work environments for T-Mobile USA workers.
