SAN DIEGO - Approximately 4,000 union workers throughout the State of California have gone on strike, according to The Communications Workers of America.
Although the CWA settled a much larger contract dispute with AT&T Mobility this past week, some employees in California have still not agreed to terms and are striking in part as a protest against what they categorize as unfair labor practices. The main dispute seems to center around CWA AT&T employees being reassigned to other duties without any prior notification to their union.Read more

Dallas, TX - Less than two weeks after reports of AT&T shuttering its ailing U-Verse video service the company today announced a slew of new video streaming options through its subsidiary DirecTV.
Unlike the company's existing U-Verse service the new plans will not require customers to subscribe to broadband via AT&T. Customers will be able to stream programming to any location or device, whether it be at home, work or accessing using a wi-fi connection. The service will not require any specific type of hardware, such as a home gateway, which was a staple of its former U-Verse service.
San Antonio, TX - According to a number of reports AT&T may already be in the process of phasing-out its troubled U-Verse video service. Bloomberg News reports that the carrier has halted manufacture of the company's set-top boxes and is hoping to migrate existing U-Verse customers to recently purchased satellite TV provider DirecTV.
The company's U-Verse service has had a troubled history, which includes a steadily declining customer base and a variety of technical problems. These have included nationwide service disruptions lasting days at a time. The service has also suffered from its reliance upon legacy DSL technology in most areas.Read more
