(referred to as "AT&T," or the "Company") announced the presentation of a new contract offer to the Communications Workers of America covering approximately 20,000 mobility employees. The proposed contract, if ratified by the represented employees by December 15, 2017, would contain the following provisions:

Effective February 12, 2017 – 2.00%
Effective February 11, 2018 – 2.25%
Effective February 10, 2019 – 2.25%
Effective February 9, 2020 – 3.00%

A lump sum bonus of $1,000 and wages retroactive to the date of expiration of the prior contract (February 12, 2017)

Healthcare benefits were previously bargained separately with the National Mobility Benefits Agreement through December 31, 2020; the current offer includes healthcare benefits for the final year of the offer (2021). For 2021 the company will pay 68% to 70% of employees' total health care costs, including 100% of preventive care costs
