|SUBJECT||:||Additional AT&T Layoffs - Working with The Alliance|
Purpose. To transmit to States additional information regarding impending AT&T layoffs nationwide.
Background. Training and Employment Information Notice (TEIN) 44-93, dated March 29, 1994, alerted the States of planned layoffs by AT&T, and to efforts by the Alliance for Employee Growth and Development, Inc. (The Alliance) to assist employees affected by the layoffs.
The aforementioned TEIN alerted the States that throughout 1994 and into 1995, AT&T will close at least 39 Operator Service Centers in 31 States, affecting several thousand employees. We encouraged the States to work cooperatively with The Alliance representatives. We now have learned that additional closings and layoffs are planned.
Information on Additional Layoffs. Attached is a list of four additional AT&T Operator Service Centers that will be closing in the near future, along with closing dates and the numbers of workers that will be affected. The Consumer Services organization within AT&T also is closing seven centers throughout the country starting July 1; those locations are also included on the list. These closings will affect over two thousand additional workers.
Action. States should alert local offices and grantees where additional AT&T layoffs will occur and share this TEIN with them. States are asked to continue their efforts to work cooperatively with The Alliance representatives to promote training and job placement efforts for these laid off workers.
Inquiries. Questions concerning this issuance may be addressed to Eric Johnson in the Office of Worker Retraining and Adjustment Programs on (202) 219-5577.
