NECN.com reported Sunday that AT&T workers in Hamden, Conn., protested outside of an AT&T call center in opposition to the telco's plan to train management employees how to run the center in the event of a union strike. The local Communications Workers of America leadership, whose regional contract with AT&T is due to expire on April 4, suggested the company was spending money on the training effort when it should be putting its efforts into negotiating with the union. Regional union contracts affecting about 112,500 AT&T employees are currently subject to negotiations.
