ATLANTA — Communications Workers of America announced Wednesday morning that it was ending its labor strike against AT&T. CWA members will return to work at 1 p.m. EDT Wednesday.
“CWA members’ spirit and solidarity over the last four days showed the company that we would not back down until they bargained with us in good faith,” said CWA District 3 Vice President Richard Honeycutt. “This was a historic strike that showed the power that working people have when they join together.”
The strike, involving more than 20,000 AT&T workers, over alleged unfair labor practices in nine states across the Southeast, started Saturday with many workers picketing.
