Union Files Protest at T-Mobile USA

The Communications Workers of America (CWA) published a protest announcement aimed at Deutsche Telekom, accusing the firm of having a double standard by being a labor-friendly enterprise at home and an anti-union employer when it thinks it can get away with it in another country -- in this case the United States. The complaint involves layoffs associated with T-Mobile USA's acquisition of Cingular's network in California. The union cited T-Mobile's decision to fire 100 unionized technicians while keeping management employees. Cingular was forced to sell the California network to gain regulatory approval of its merger with AT&T Wireless.
