After nearly 2 1/2 years of CWA's efforts to have AT&T get rid of their behavior-based, safety discipline policies—during which time many locals have filed complaints with state and federal OSHAs (as well as contractual grievances)—the DOL filed suit against the company re. 13 Ohio cases. These are the best of the 34 total cases in Ohio. In addition to five Michigan administrative law judges' decisions against the company, this is a huge partial victory. We will be working to have DOL move on other federal OSHA cases with the idea of achieving a national settlement agreement with DOL and AT&T.
