AT&T Facing Possible Employee Walk-Out

UNITED STATES  --  By Monday, nearly 21,000 AT&T workers may walk off the job.

The Communications Workers of America Union gave the company a 72-hour notice on Friday of a possible walk-out. Union members have been working on a rolling extension of their previous labor contract since early February, but have yet to strike a deal with AT&T.

According to union members, 12,000 AT&T call center jobs have been sent offshore. The goal of Communications Workers of America is to end offshoring through negotiations.

AT&T has already agreed to purchase Time Warner--which owns CNN--although that deal is still awaiting regulatory approval.
