Lawrenceburg AT&T employees are currently protesting at the intersection of East Gaines and North Locust Avenue as part of a large scale strike against the company.

In Tennessee there was also reports of employees on strike in downtown Nashville in front of the "batman building" as well as in Knoxville on the corner of Broadway and Depot located near the AT&T building.

The strike began around midnight on Friday where employees with the company stated that the people that AT&T are sending to the bargaining table are not even capable of making any decisions, and that the strike will continue until a fair agreement is reached.

Regarding the strike AT&T released a statement saying," A strike is in no one’s best interest. We remain ready to sit down with union leaders to listen to their concerns and work with them on negotiating a new, improved contract for our employees. We’re surprised and disappointed that union leaders would call a strike at this point in the negotiations, particularly when we’re offering terms that would help our employees – some of whom average from $121,000 to $134,000 in total compensation – be even better off. We have offered the union terms that are consistent with what other CWA-represented employees have approved in recent contract negotiations; the company has reached 20 fair agreements since 2017 covering more than 89,000 employees. The Southeast contract covers fewer than 8 percent of our employees. We’re prepared for a strike and in the event of a work stoppage, we will continue working hard to serve our customers."

The Lawrenceburg AT&T employees have stated they would like to thank everyone in the community for showing their support.
