Bill protecting call-center jobs passes labor committee

Merch 22, 2019  |  Hartford Business Journal

A bill aimed at protecting call-center jobs in Connecticut was passed Thursday by the legislature’s labor committee and is now headed to the House and Senate for further consideration.

The bill, S.B. 990, has been pushed over the last month amid AT&T’s announcement that it would relocate three call centers in Meriden to Tennessee and Georgia over the coming months, which will result in the loss of 117 high-paying jobs.
