More than 300 AT&T workers in the Dayton area officially went on strike at around 10:30 a.m. Thursday following a vote by union members.

The 330 workers on strike are part of the Communication Workers of America (CWA) Local 4322.

According to mobilization chair Jeff Mitchell, workers are on an ‘unfair labor practice strike’.

The workers on strike are made up of repair workers, construction workers, installers, engineers and call center employees.

The strike impacts DirectTV, Uverse and AT&T phone customers in the Dayton area.

2 NEWS reached out to AT&T Thursday for comment on the strike. They released the following statement:

“A walkout is not in anybody’s best interest, and it’s unfortunate that the union chose to do that. This contract currently covers good-paying U.S. jobs averaging over $120,000 a year in pay and benefits, with some making over $200,000. After over 10 weeks of negotiations, we have presented a final offer to the union’s negotiating team at the bargaining table with a goal of bringing this process to a close and reaching a fair agreement for our employees. We’re offering a generous package including annual wage increases, continuation of job security provisions that are virtually unheard of in the U.S., and comprehensive healthcare and retirement benefits. In addition, the offer includes a commitment to hire 1,000 people in the region. All employees covered by the offer would be better off. We’re very prepared to continue serving customers. We’re a customer service company and we plan for all contingencies, whether related to weather, natural disasters, or even work stoppages.”

No word yet on when both sides will meet to try and reach a deal.
