It all works like magic. No one will be needed to maintain any equipment as it is all maintenance free even billing and sales will be automated. It is sort of like a perpetual motion machine only for telecom. Just wait the French have it down pat.
All they need is 5g satellites and they already have them no more Fios
But... what will become of the union??? :0
This 5G is the best no employees needed.
Put it this way:
5G = no tech
Clearly they want the Union executives, the company’s gift that keeps on giving, to give back even more, so put your seatbelt on as we race to the end in 2023...
All jobs are in the block. This 5G stuff is magic. It operates in the ethereal space and VZ has magicians that have mastered it. Just you wait, once they cast the spell there will be no need for employees to do any work. The 5G will just roll along and earn them billions.
Verizon wants a lot of subcontracting . The hammer is coming 2023
@1DUN. We can assume you have achieved financial independence and have chosen to spend your free time trolling those who are on the brink of attaining theirs?
Vz doesnt want outside plant, wireless is the cheapest way to run company. They would love to sell off copper, and fios, but that is a big hurdle for them. Rumors were always around, wanted to basically give away outside plant. As technology increases, there will be a day when everything is just data driven, TVs will have better capabilities to use 5g and no inside equipment necessary, anything prior will be a easier version of drop ship to customers, even cell phones, maybe 5g amplifiers, its done today, just replace sim card from old to new and your up. Only issue is the 5g vz bought, compared to at&t and sprint, it is lower bandwidth and not as good. Theres diff spectrums of 5g.. until they figure that out and get act together, means there is still work. I highly suggest if anyone can budget, max your 401k contributions and build more wealth. Put yourself in a place of financial stability next few years. Have a plan and be strict on spending and saving. After 2023, it will be very hard to keep going as we are use to. Any eisps from now to then will see senior guys go here and there, many before contract end, new hires have a seporate contract and unions will lose a bit of leverage.That said, if we were non union, imagine how bad it would be now. Contracting out more work will be on table in 2023, and they had/have 5 years to plan for it. ( next contract) half my garage will be eligible by then to leave. Maybe the health issues and concerns surrounding 5g will be ahiccup, but politicians pockets are deep, as is vz.
The fact nobody seems to know the company's direction points to absence of leadership. Lack of leaders is VZs Achilles heel.
Vz future is 5 g that's it ,ask manager about us working on it blank look across his face,we are not being let in on build out. When 5 g build out complete buy buy wont need us .wait someone said it will take years,ask crown castel partners with Verizon .theres citys all ready done we dont hear anything about ocean city Maryland! Done !! Were else I'll as verizon! O wait blank stare !!!! Wait ill ask union lol
I believe they want nothing to do with traditional service, and envision a world they rule because of 5G. They’re wrong of course, 5G will not be the wonder cure they think it is.
They have repeatedly shown they don’t value their managers, and obviously don’t want union workers.
It is impossible to predict the future of this company as they seem to have a new plan every few weeks, each more convoluted than the last.
Let’s face it, they make money despite themselves, and tons of it.
If you can do a job...become a union craftsperson. If you are a leader and have a vision for your life of financial independence without spending your adult life working, do something better.
If you can do a job...become a union craftsperson. If you can’t do it, become a manager.
Jpm... that's exactly what this MANAGEMENT layoff board needs MORE union whining.
Keep selling 5G and moving debt around until I take flight with a golden parashot
Considering we where sold out a few contacts ago, we aren’t doing so bad. Yes we lost paid FMLA, have to pay into our benefits, some pretty bad work conditions,(excessive n-days, manager harassment ect) but at least we should get to the finish line 2023, hopefully. So come to work, run in Fios if that’s what you like, splice fibers if that’s your thing, or transfer pairs if your the modern day galvo tech. Words from my executive Union board, “your lucky to have a job”.
They are being plaed to share news 12 there is the proof. Supposedly the French hate unions and want wireline to crush the union.
Altice has no intentions to buy Verizon fios,that's all fake news,show me the proof...all B.S
FiOS (Fiber Optic Service)...gig not up.. The word "fios" is Irish for "knowledge"
get some !
@tqn - Writing meet wall...
Haven't you heard the gig is up. Altice has decided to sell Fios some news content. This means their is no future with VZ the future is with Altice.
