Gov. Brown: Stand with the Communication Workers of America in Support of the AT&T/T-Mobile Merger

    1. Sponsored by

      Communications Workers of America

 

Millions of Americans are out of work or looking for work.

The US has fallen behind the rest of the world in developing the high speed broadband infrastructure that will create the jobs of the future.

The proposed merger of AT&T and T-Mobile would create thousands of new, quality jobs, accelerate broadband build out, and improve wireless communications throughout the country.

27 other governors now support of the merger. The Communications Workers of America and their thousands of California members are asking Gov. Jerry Brown to support American workers and consumers by showing he is strongly behind the merger.

These jobs include the direct work of building the network as well as indirect jobs for the thousands of people in secondary industries.   

For residents of rural areas, where broadband helps people stay connected and stay competitive, this is a life changing development. The merger will dramatically expand broadband access to rural and underserved areas, bringing coverage with all its advantages to 98% of California.

The merger will also benefit workers in the wireless industry as AT&T is the only wireless company with a unionized workforce and a long tradition of non-interference with respect to the organizing employees.

Take action now: tell Gov. Jerry Brown to support the AT&T/T-Mobile Merger. It will create thousands of new, quality jobs, accelerate broadband build out, and improve wireless communications across the country.

      The school site where I work has does not have cellular service. I think this is a BIG safety issue as our campus is spread out & when power is out (as happens frequently in winter we cannot communicate with the office or other classsrooms.

      It's a GAME CHANGER for union jobs! If the merger goes through, the T-Mobile workers that have faced ridiculously evil anti-union behavior from T-Mobile will FINALLY be free to make their choice. AT&T has card check waiting for them. They sign up a majority and they are recognized and folded into the current AT&T wireless contract. AND THE UNION WILL REPRESENT A MAJORITY OF WIRELESS WORKERS, GREATLY ENHANCING THE EFFORTS TO CAREER PATH AND MAKE THESE JOBS GOOD UNION JOBS. EVERYONE WINS!!! Please Gov Brown, this is so needed, and it just takes conditions for make it a win-win.
