DALLAS, Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --AT&T* today announced that AT&T Mobility
has reached a tentative agreement with the Communications Workers of America
in contract negotiations covering more than 20,000 AT&T Mobility employees in

The four-year agreement covers Mobility employees in CWA Districts 1, 2/13, 4,
7, and 9 – generally in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Mountain States
and West Coast. Out of respect for the CWA and its membership, AT&T will not
comment on details of the tentative agreement until it has been presented to
members by their leadership.

The agreement, which is subject to ratification, covers wages, pension,
disability and work rules. Health care and other benefits are bargained
separately. CWA members in October ratified a separate four-year benefit
agreement for all CWA-bargained Mobility employees nationwide.
