Wireline employees represented by the Communications Workers of America District 9 rejected a new labor contract that had been negotiated by the union and AT&T West. The contract would have covered more than 17,000 AT&T employees in California and Nevada.
AT&T said it regretted this outcome as the new contract would have provided annual wage and pension increases. Similar contracts had been accepted by CWA membership in other areas of the country.
AT&T said it will go back to the bargaining table.
