So once this contract here in the west get signed you are going to see major layoffs/surplus on technicians. My question is, are they going to base it on seniority or performance? I for one would like to make it performance.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow...

Tomorrow is the 15th. The day of surplus announcements... Does anyone have any information/ rumors? Groups??? Locations???


Why did AT&T purchase a sinking ship in Directv? Was it just to get the customer base of Directv? It's no secret satellite TV is going to be extinct in a few years.

Market Gossip

Thought it would be funny to share gossip/rumors happening within the markets. Leadership is inept. Forces things down your throats that are contrary to the company values.
