I stumbled across this article today. It's crazy what some of these corporations will do to please their shareholders. AT&T is obviously very concerned about protecting their dividend. It's always about the bottom line, never about the workers... — read more

Our ism tells us to open AT&T accounts without customers permission. Add lines. Tell the customer they can’t change the plan without adding a line. Obviously COBC is huge but reported it to director and nothing. Sent email to HR. Nothing. Who else... — read more
If your area was heavily impacted by the last layoffs (like 30% or 40% or more cut), what's happening in your area now? Has everyone's work doubled? Are projects getting cut? Has work ground to a halt? Are reorgs happening? Are people just... — read more
I got sent a screenshot of a new award program over in the Katibeh org under Chow. If your work results in a "momentous" achievement, you can receive this officer-level award. What's in it? An extra bonus on your paycheck? No. Even better. .. — read more
Here are some suggestions to fix a few things here at T, now remember this is coming from a "lowbie", so, you know how little we actually KNOW about business. 1) A 2-year moratorium on layoffs and hiring (including overseas). Need to lower the... — read more

Anyone hear of anything new in the Chow's org? Dates? Rumors?
I can’t believe she is head of HR. Full of generic buzz words, nothing authentic in this song and dance about culture with McFresh.
Evidently the folks in charge realized something that our president hasn't: that Covid will not magically disappear. And so there was an email to corporate/office workers saying that wfh will be extended until sometime in mid 2021. On top of... — read more

Our last 3 town halls seemed to confirm MVO letters will be sent on August 14 - anyone hear if involuntary layoffs coming before 2021?? It doesn't appear to be any but just asking

Any store closings in the Great Lakes market? If so, where?
I have noticed that AT&T always seems to send out an employee survey after a surplus has taken place. As another one is expected in August, it makes one think that the strategy is to immediately get a survey out after a surplus has taken place... — read more
Last good acquisition? Sale? Product?
Any dates floating around for surplus announcements?
Decided to click on their links at the top of the page. Smaller content but other than names mentioned you would think you were on the AT&T page. Same issues and complaints. Different business models but the thrust of their posts are the same.
Just had to think hard for about 60 seconds to remember the name of HBO's streaming service. HBO Plus? HBO Go? HBO Now? This is not a good sign. (P.S., it's HBO Max.)
