AT&T will lay off more than 3,000 employees and close stores in the united States


The telecommunications company AT&T will put in place a restructuring plan of 6,000 million dollars, which will lead to dismissal of employees and closure of stores, reported the union of Workers of Communications of America (CWA, for its acronym in English).

The union presented a written communication that the company notified them of his plans to trim more than 3,400 jobs of technicians and administrative staff throughout the country during the next few weeks.

“In addition, the company plans to permanently close more than 250 stores, AT&T Mobility and Cricket Wireless, impacting 1,300 jobs retail. These cuts will occur when the americans have become more dependent than ever on communications services are reliable and the crisis of COVID-19 has revealed significant gaps in the availability of broadband, especially in rural areas,” said CWA.

Crisis by the coronavirus

Similarly, the union indicated last month, the CEO of AT&T, Randall Stephenson, described the crisis of COVID-19 as a “time of war”, during an interview on CNN.

“Everyone needs to step up and do their part, in terms of how we help the population in general, and the general public,” added Stephenson.

However, the union criticized the layoffs and closures of stores at a time of economic crisis by the coronavirus.

“CWA and AT&T have been working together to protect the health and safety of workers and customers, and to provide a premium payment to essential employees. The company showed interest in investing in their workers, and their network to cancel the buyback of planned actions. AT&T could help to bring the country to recovery by partnering with their workforce to build next-generation networks. In exchange, the company is increasing the pain of the recession that is already underway”, stated the president of CWA, Chris Shelton.
