AT&T and the Communications Workers of America District 9 reached a tentative labor agreement covering more than 17,000 wireline employees in California and Nevada.

The three year deal, which will be submitted to the CWA's membership for a ratification vote, includes general wage increases in each year of the contract – 2.25 percent effective Oct. 1, 2012, 2.75 percent in 2013, 3 percent in 2014, and 2.5 percent in 2015. It includes a 1 percent pension band increase in each year of the contract for most employees, and expansion to additional employees of a provision that provides qualified surplus employees a guaranteed job opportunity with AT&T. It maintains one of the most robust health care plans in the nation, with increases in employee contributions.
