CWA UPDATE ON AT&T NEGOTIATIONS

 CWA UPDATE ON AT&T NEGOTIATIONS
 WASHINGTON, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- On a nationwide conference call


with 4,000 union stewards, Communications Workers of America President Morton Bahr expressed his extreme dissatisfaction with the lack of progress in negotiations with AT&T today.
 "I am terribly disappointed," Bahr said. "We made a full presentation to the company on all 28 of our outstanding issues, only to have their negotiators request a recess until 9:00 a.m. tomorrow. I have put AT&T on notice that if we do not have an agreement by tomorrow night, the union will send home the members of our local issues bargaining committees. Their job will be to take home the story of the company's intransigence, AT&T's disrespect for our members and the families we represent in communities around the country, and to assist their Local leadership in implementing an intensified mobilization program."
 Talks between CWA, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and AT&T top negotiators recessed tonight at approximately 8:30 p.m., to resume on Wednesday, June 3, at 9:00 a.m.
 The CWA Public Affairs office will issue periodic updates on the status of talks tomorrow.
 CWA represents over 600,000 workers in telecommunications, printing, publishing, media, health care, and the public sector in the United States and Canada, including 100,000 workers at AT&T.
