LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - AT&T has announced that AT&T Southeast (BellSouth Telecommunications) has reached a handshake on a tentative agreement with the Communications Workers of America in contract negotiations.
Company officials, in a Monday news release, also said that AT&T reached "handshakes on tentative agreements with the CWA on two other smaller Southeast regional agreements covering AT&T Billing Southeast and Southeast Utility Operations."
Paperwork is reportedly being finalized.
Last week, Communication Workers of America staged an informational picket against AT&T in Lake Charles.
Workers said the pickets were a show of support for their bargaining committee.
The contract was slated to expire at 11:59 p.m. Saturday.
