The move comes as the two companies are seeking approval for a $39-billion deal where AT&T will be acquiring its smaller rival, T-Mobile.

According to AT&T and T-Mobile, if the deal is allowed to be completed, they will be bringing back 5,00 call center jobs from contact centers located outside the U.S.

The move is aimed to dispel fears that if the AT&T/T-Mobile merge completes, it will result in a loss of jobs from both of the companies.

There have been suggestions that the deal will result in job loss particularly in the call centers operated by the telecoms giants as the companies may consolidate their operations once the deal is finalized.

AT&T Chairman and Chief Executive Randall Stephenson said in a statement that “At a time when many Americans are struggling and our economy faces significant challenges, we’re pleased that the T-Mobile merger allows us to bring 5,000 jobs back to the United States and significantly increase our investment here.”
