Union joes smarter than Fairpoint Fredersens
The various unions also fought like hell against the Verizon deal.
YES, of course they are biased towards their own interests....
....BUT they did raise many valid points about the condition of the equipment, and even about the finances, that the Wall Street folks and Fairpoint should have looked into for themselves before finishing the deal.
In this case, the unions were telling the truth, and time has proven them right!!
