AT&T workers walked off the job Friday to protest a contract they have been negotiating for the past four months demanding the company give more benefits, higher pay and a reduction of offshore jobs, according to a press release from their union, Communications Workers of America.

Dennis Trainor, vice president of CWA District 1, said in a statement all employees will return to work on Monday at the start of their scheduled shift.

Johnson believed the strike would not involve those employed at the AT&T call center at The Highlands, and that only AT&T Mobility workers - the cellphone sales clerks at AT&T stores - would be affected.

This weekend's strike comes almost two months after 17,000 AT&T workers in Nevada and California walked off the job.

"Dallas-based AT&T says it has a contingency workforce" ready in preparation for the walkouts.

As far as the memory aspect is concerned, there will be 4GB of RAM along with 32GB of expandable default storage space. The device in question, allegedly the Galaxy J7 Max, is expected to be priced somewhere around Rs 20,000 or less.

Workers had issued an ultimatum, giving company executives until 3 p.m. ET on Friday to present serious proposals.

Holding signs that proclaim they are "On Strike for Good Jobs", workers from the AT&T Call Center in Davenport have crowded the sidewalks along 53rd Street and Elmore Avenue Friday afternoon.

AT&T customers could find it hard to obtain help this weekend if something were to happen to their DirecTV, U-Verse, or AT&T wireless service, as AT&T union workers walked off the job today following failed contract negotiations.

Picketers were also at the retail stores in Boardman and Niles.

"The Teamsters Union stands shoulder-to-shoulder with our brothers and sisters at AT&T, and we will honor their picket lines as we support their efforts to achieve a fair contract". AT&T worker Nicole Popis told People's World that she and her coworkers were ready to do "whatever it takes" to get a fair contract. I'm a single mother and my son is about to graduate.
