AT&T and CWA Union Continue to Negotiate after Contracts Expire

David McNew/Getty Images(DALLAS) -- AT&T announced on Sunday that it will continue to negotiate with one of its unions after it failed to reach agreement to renew four contracts by the April 7 deadline, Bloomberg Businessweek reports.

Employees in the Communications Workers of America union will work under the terms of the expired contract while negotiations continue. The four contracts--East, Legacy T, Midwest and West--cover almost 40,000 employees.

The CWA has been pushing to address issues such as weekend days off and health-care benefits. The union represents around 16 percent of AT&T's 256,000 employees.
