Getting sick after hours or on weekends used to mean a long, costly trip to the emergency room or urgent
care center. But with your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) Virtual Visits benefit, powered by
MDLIVE, the doctor is in 24/7. You can see a doctor or behavioral health specialist without leaving the comfort of your own home.
Virtual Visits allows you to consult a doctor for non-emergency situations by phone, mobile app or online
video anytime, anywhere. Speak to a doctor or schedule an appointment at a time that works best for you.
Why Virtual Visits?

Victory!!  9-1-1 Bill To Restore the public’s safety and Collective Bargaining Rights was signed into law by the Governor of Puerto Rico

April 6, 2020

After two intensive years of lobbying and solidarity from members of CWA Local 3010, the Governor of Puerto Rico has signed bipartisan legislation to protect the public's 9-1-1 funds and restore collective bargaining rights for CWA members which have been suspended since 2017. 

The District 3 Office and CWA’s International Executive Board are committed to doing all that
we can to protect the health and safety of our membership. Over the last few weeks we have
consistently sent the message to AT&T that steps should be taken to temporarily eliminate the
requirement for technicians, to enter customer’s homes. As a result of our discussions at both the
District and National level, AT&T has finally agreed to begin taking certain steps towards
addressing this important issue. Today, we received the information listed below from AT&T

In regards to the Corona virus, the CDC has changed the age of those most susceptible from 60+ to 65+. Because of this, AT&T has update their leave to reflect the same age.
If you are out on leave for the sole reason of being 60+ and are not 65 or older, your leave will end on March 27th, and you will be expected to return to work.
