CWA is a union not a consumer protection organization
The CWA is a union, which means its obligation is to look out for its member and increase the size of its membership, not to look out for consumers. The ATT/T-mobile deal is bad for consumers and this country, but it would take all the non management T-mobile workers and make them unionized(because ATT wireless is unionized, T-mobile isn't) CWA is looking out for its interests in this deal. All entities here: ATT, T-mobile, CWA and Sprint are simply acting in their own self interests. It is not surprising at all. The world would be a better place if the consumers and the nation's well being were put ahead of narrow self interest, but sadly that is not how corporations, unions, or people behave.
