Re: Unionize?

AT&T's wireless side is unionized.

That's strange... I have spoken with some of the AT&T techs that come out to grant us access to their sites for equipment installs and they tell me they work for contractors. I have also seen AT&T sites being built (as well as Verizon) and they also use contractors for that. Do you know which wireless techs specifically are unionized?

The key word you failed to recognize as the most important part of your statement is contractor, if they are contractors they are not at&t employee's. the occupational employee's at&t are unionized, in both the wireline and wireless. at&t does use a large number of contractors especially, for short term projects like tower buildouts equipment installs and laying fiber/copper.

Yes, exactly my point... I have never seen an AT&T wireless tech (much less a union one) only contractors. I am aware that the wireline side has union techs but, I'll ask again, what tech positions on the wireless side are unionized? What do they do?
