President Donald Trump gathered workers from around the U.S. to help show the benefits that are being seen from the tax cut plan recently passed. A major union preparing to strike against AT&T has compiled a detailed report of U.S. layoffs and call center closures that it says shows the telecom giant has violated its own post-tax reform promises. The Communications Workers of America, which is in ongoing contract talks with AT&T on behalf of 14,000 workers in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin, as well as its nationwide Legacy T contract, says the company has been cutting call center workers in favor of outsourcing, despite its promises to invest in its workers after President Trump's passage of sweeping tax cuts. In December, AT&T issued $1,000 bonuses to more than 200,000 employees after the tax reform bill's passage. The company also promised to increase investment in the U.S. and, the union charges, implied hiring increases.
