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.

The union, the Communications Workers of America, complains that AT&T is sending call-center jobs overseas and diverting retail jobs to so-called authorized retailers not owned by the company and not unionized, and where wages and benefits are lower. Health care benefits are also at issue, the union president said.

Workers at the Boardman AT&T call center and at retail shops on Mahoning Avenue and South Tiffany Boulevard were all on strike, a union spokeswoman said. "We don't think the company realizes just how angry and upset their workers are". "We are what help make AT&T the company that it is and, I think, that will get our message across", said Travis Daniel, picketer.

12,000 call center jobs in the United States have been eliminated since 2011 as AT&T has chosen to instead contract with third-party vendors overseas that supply low-wage workers who aren't subject to much weaker labor protections.
