AT&T's Updated COVID-19 Vaccine Policy for Employees
AT&T to require COVID-19 vaccine for employees represented by IBEW Mobility, Alascom IBEW Local 1547 and Alascom Teamsters Local 959 labor contracts
This extends our previous vaccine requirements to more employees, helping keep employees and customers protected
What’s the news? AT&T* is implementing a COVID-19 vaccination policy that extends our vaccine requirement to employees represented by IBEW Mobility, Alascom IBEW Local 1547 and Alascom Teamsters Local 959 labor contracts, helping to make our workplace safer for more of our employees and customers. This follows the policy we announced at the end of September, requiring CWA-represented employees to be vaccinated by Feb. 1, 2022, as well as the previous management policy announced in August, requiring most management employees to be vaccinated by Oct. 11, 2021.
Why is this important? This new COVID-19 vaccination policy calls for employees covered by these labor contracts who come into work locations, client and customer events or sites, or who are temporarily working from home to be fully vaccinated and compliant with the policy by Feb. 1, 2022, unless they get an approved job accommodation.
AT&T is one of the largest employers of union-represented employees in America and the only major U.S. wireless company with a union-represented non-management workforce.
