The Communications Workers of America has forged some inroads among workers at AT&T Corp.'s cable systems, unionizing 16 operations the company purchased from Tele Communications Inc. (TCI). TCI had aggressively opposed unionization, and some of that opposition has persisted under AT&T management. Union and AT&T officials met last spring to negotiate a neutrality and consent election agreement, in which the company agreed to let workers attempt to organize without its direct opposition.
