The Communications Workers of America (CWA) said it has planned a nationwide three day strike against AT&T for 19 May at 3.00 pm Eastern time, after negotiations broke down between the two parties.

The union said it was also protesting AT&T's "pervasive efforts" to outsource customer support jobs.
