During an event today with UMWA President Cecil Roberts, Senator Joe Manchin announced that he is co-sponsoring the PRO Act.
The 14,000 workers at AT&T Midwest and AT&T Legacy T, members of the Communications Workers of America, will continue working even though their contracts have expired. The AT&T Midwest agreement expired at 11:59 pm CT on Saturday. The AT&T Legacy T contract expired at 11:59 ET on Saturday.

Contract negotiations get underway today between the Communications Workers of America and Frontier Communications covering 1,600 CWA telecommunications workers in West Virginia and Ashburn, Va. The current contract expires Aug. 5.

For more than five years, CWA members, allies, and working families throughout the country mobilized to expose this corporate-friendly trade deal and the serious consequences for working families and communities if it did take effect. CWA members and allies long have been ahead of Washington on the issue of TPP and trade policy, and this work built a strong public base of voters who rejected what they clearly recognized as bad deal, no matter their political party.
