Today at 10 am, thousands of AT&T workers, including about 300 local Dayton workers, walked out after months of attempted negotiations with AT&T failed. Represented by the Communications Workers of America, these workers are asking for “wage increases that cover rising healthcare costs, job security against outsourcing, affordable healthcare and a fair scheduling policy,” according to Reuters. Basically, they are asking for fair compensation and decent working conditions.
