Wheeling, Weirton AT&T Workers Could Strike

About 37000 AT&T workers go on three-day strike

Local Communication Workers of America union members joined a nationwide strike against AT&T Friday.

Organizers say about 200 AT&T workers in Hawaii are joining in on the three-day strike, which could affect storefronts and mall kiosks.

That includes the 19,000 line and cable workers in California, Nevada and CT and the DirecTV technicians who will also be walking picket lines over the weekend if they don't get a new contract.

Hundreds of the striking wireline technicians, call center representatives, DIRECTV workers and wireless workers from Burbank were planning to picket in front of an AT&T wireless store in Burbank, beginning at 2 p.m.

Google CE Partners to Debut Standalone VR Headsets in 2017
If Google's making their own VR headset tech, that makes some more sense as to why they acquired Owlchemy Labs for VR content . They are free-form and wireless, yet still capable of providing full 360 degree tracking using what Google calls WorldSense .

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

They expect workers and members of the public at each location, Trementozzi said. "We are what help make AT&T the company that it is and, I think, that will get our message across", said Travis Daniel, picketer.

AT&T workers went on strike Friday in Philadelphia and other cities in Pennsylvania to protest the company's failure to negotiate in good faith a new contract.

Employees at several area AT&T stores, including the one at the Eastwood Mall in Niles, and the call center in Boardman said they plan to join the picket line.

"This is a warning to AT&T: there's only one way out of this now - a fair contract". It's about time we stand up to receive better and affordable healthcare, a fair scheduling policy and overall wage increase.

Workers are also frustrated that they are being asked to pay more of their health-insurance costs, he added, and that changes in retail workers' commissions have limited or reduced their take-home pay.

The strike comes at a hard time for AT&T's wireless business, which has faced intense pressure since the start of the year from aggressive competitors and apathetic customers.

The two groups' contract negotiations are separate from those of the wireless workers.
