Syracuse, N.Y. -- The Communications Workers of America is criticizing AT&T for its decision to close its 150-worker call center in downtown Syracuse while reaping a $20 billion windfall from the 2017 tax cut law.

“AT&T should have to explain why it’s rolling out closure after closure, and upending lives of workers who’ve given the company so much,” CWA Telecommunications and Technologies Vice President Lisa Bolton said in a statement Thursday.
