The workers, who are members of Communications Workers of America, are protesting "AT&T's failure to present serious proposals that invest in good jobs with a future", the union said in a press release.
A one-day strike in March by approximately 17,000 call center and office workers represented by the Communications Workers of Americas in California and Nevada led to rapid contract settlement between the union and AT&T.
Brandie Irwin walked the picketline Friday in Roseville, Minn., one of about 600 Minnesotans and tens of thousands of AT&T employees nationwide who walked off the job in a three-day strike. "We're all family, whether you're a union member or not", an AT&T spokesman said.
Richter said the company was confident it would would settle the contract dispute after having successfully reached 29 contract agreements covering over 128,000 employees since 2015.
AT&T stores will remain open during the strike.
The strike would include 21,000 AT&T Mobility workers and would mark the first time the carrier's wireless employees held a strike.
The CWA estimates that AT&T cut roughly 12,000 call center jobs in America and created the same in some foreign country. The workers have been at the bargaining table for months seeking a fair contract, but the company has not delivered.
Local AT&T workers say they are overworked and underpaid, and that the company refuses to negotiate fair contracts after nearly 13 months. They will return to work Monday even as union officials vow to keep fighting for wage increases to cover higher healthcare costs; limitations on outsourcing; chances in the company's scheduling policy; and changes to the existing commission plan.
In April previous year, 40,000 Verizon workers went on strike.
CWA represents roughly 150,000 workers at AT&T. In recent years, the call center has employed about 400.
Almost 21,000 employees who took part in the three-day strike work in its wireless section.
As at most telecommunications companies, AT&T's wireless business is growing faster and is more profitable than its wireline side. Our message is clear: fair contract or strike.
Picketers were also at the retail stores in Boardman and Niles.
Dennis Trainor, vice president of CWA District 1, says AT&T failed to produce an agreeable bargain for the union.
