Hypocrisy At Its Finest This is the same CWA that insisted T-Mobile being borged by the thing that calls itself "AT&T" these days would create jobs?
Anybody shocked? the CWA does whatever helps the CWA and screws over the people. I have worked under the CWA and they are a horrible union with essentially no power. They do nothing to help out employees who have been wronged, I saw this multiple times, and they always back management.
I am all for unions but they have to be there for the people they are representing. The CWA is just a cash grab by a greedy organization.

said by RiseAbove:How is this different than any other organization? The union has one major interest; perpetuating itself and its leadership (after all, the last thing they want to do is have to go back to doing the real labor they supposedly represent). And of course they will accept layoffs. Once laid off, a worker is no longer a member of most unions and cannot vote out the leadership that caused them to lose their job.

My father was in a professional union for a long time and the union was never there to help him with a grievance but they were front and center to collect dues and demand he man a picket line.
I support the right to keep and arm bears.
Wouldn't doubt it.... Despite coming from the CWA, has consolidation ever resulted in a gain of jobs? Obviously there will be layoffs if this merger goes through. 10,000... doesn't sound that unreasonable. That is just how business works.

10,000 lost jobs due to the merger? Calling the CWA's math unreliable is an understatement.
MetroPCS only has 3,600 employees while T-Mobile USA claims 36,000 employees....

Yeah, I would bet closer to 500-2000 jobs lost.
MetroPCS MetroPCS is ghetto as it comes for a cellular network. Most people they hire are students and people with no work experience. You guys should try waiting in line at one of these places. It is worse than a post office. They hire maybe 2 - 3 people to service 30 - 40 people waiting in line for over an hour. I have gone to two MetroPcs locations and never seen such horrible customer service before in my life.

Re: Hypocrisy At Its Finest Tmobile is not unionized, never has been probably never will be. Its employees have shut down every attempt at being unionized. So CWA won't have new members therefore bad.
Come on CWA shills I know you are out there.. refute this, tell us all how it's a complete lie.
reply to jseymour
Why would anyone believe the CWA? Nuff said.
Just another... Justification as to why the unions of today are useless to the actual paying members and should be abolished.

Re: MetroPCS You my friend have never heard of Cricket, where unlimited local calling plans are sold for a dollar per day.
Haha, we do not have Cricket here in the South.
reply to jc100
Metro and Cricket have very little overlap in their coverage areas. Which is why I always thought it would be great it they would eventually merge to give us another nationwide provider. But this deal with T-mo pretty much kills that idea.

Re: Hypocrisy At Its Finest Also generally EU companies and people that work for them won't unionize. I worked for an EU company and the company was AWESOME to work for! Would still be with them if the mgt in the store wasn't so horrible (well managers stealing products) and the DM and other Company officials in the US would do their jobs.

Re: MetroPCS According to Northcoast PCS (Revol.com) They're buying more of Cricket from LEAP as they did previously in the Midwest. But if anyone things Metro is horrible, wait until you deal with Revol.

Re: Just another... Unless you commit a crime then they are there to protect you.
I hope you just forgot the sarcasm tag..
They are only there to keep the money flowing to the union bosses income and lavish life styles.
sarcasm tag for who? me?
