Verizon Wireless workers, who went on a 49-day strike previous year, are being urged to join the picket lines in support of their fellow union workers.
"We're offering terms in which our employees in these contracts-some of whom average from $115,000 to $148,000 in total compensation-will be better off financially", the statement said. Workers are also protesting AT&T's pervasive offshoring of jobs to low-wage contractors, which eliminate good jobs and hurt customer service.
Landline workers in California and Nevada picketed for a day in March to protest work rules for some in-home technicians and moves to replace USA call-center jobs with contractors hired overseas. The workers on strike are members of the CWA.
A three-day "weekend strike" in 36 states called by about 40,000 union workers at AT&T extends to the company's call center in Pueblo.

About 500 AT&T workers are striking right now in Evansville.
AT&T addressed the strike in statement Friday.
AT&T has 325 wireless retail employers and technicians in MA, and 900 around New England. A spokesperson for AT&T, Marty Richter, said the company "is prepared, and we will continue working hard to serve our customers". "This is why Spectrum is offering our field technicians an even larger pay increase than the union has demanded along with competitive and robust health care and retirement benefits", a Charter spokesman said.
Protesters are protected by the Communications Workers of America Union. About 25 people are holding signs on the picket line in front of the AT&T store. Additional workers in the wireline business in CT and DirecTV workers in California also plan to walk out, the union said.
Contract negotiations have been ongoing since February when an agreement was reached that allowed the union to strike at any time. This will be the first time the members will be walking out from AT&T mobility.
