Well today is the day that all our brothers/sisters from across the country will be laid off, our hearts go out to them and wish them the best of luck. It is pretty sad that our members are getting the axe, while they are still hiring in outsource centers. When will the madness end??? With the SBC merger, word is that AT&7amp;T will continue with itís downsizing and outsourcing plans. CWA is trying to get some job protection for our members thru the merger, with little or no luck. Meanwhile, Dave Dorman is negotiating his lucrative package with SBC. When will the madness end, your guess is as good as mine.
