Bargaining Update


CWA members at DirecTV covered by three contracts reached tentative agreements this week. The Orange Customer Care contract covers members in Minnesota, West Virginia, and Colorado who primarily work as call center representatives. The Midwest contract covers members in Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois who work as technicians, dispatchers, office coordinators, administrative support assistants, and technical support representatives. The DirecTV Field Services Telecommunications and Technologies Labor Agreement covers members in Delaware, Oregon, New Mexico, and Maryland who primarily work as technicians and administrative support assistants. The members have been mobilizing and working closely with their respective bargaining committees for months to harness their collective power and win contracts with substantial improvements to wages and working conditions, including pay increases, adjustments to healthcare costs, added protections for employees who work from home, the addition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a paid holiday, improved scheduling and attendance policies, and much more. The members will be voting to ratify each of the contracts in the coming weeks.


Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald, and Bradenton Herald

Workers at the Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald, and Bradenton Herald, members of CWA Local 3108, voted unanimously to ratify their first contracts with McClatchy. Throughout the bargaining, the members engaged in escalating actions including a letter-writing campaign, a press conference and rally, and a one-day work stoppage. Highlights of the new contract include wage increases and retroactive pay, protections against layoffs, adjustments to healthcare costs, paid parental leave, and the recognition of Juneteenth as a paid holiday.
