Wednesday, May 19, 2004The Communication Workers of America, the union representing the employees of the SBC telephone company, have given that company notice that they may go on strike at any time:
" ... SBC wants it both ways -- gouging our workers on health costs while also demanding a first-year base wage freeze to fatten its profits," CWA President Morton Bahr said late Tuesday in a statement on the union's Web site. "That amounts to pure greed." ...
In 2003, SBC was by far the most profitable of the four so-called "Baby Bell" local-phone companies, earning $8.5 billion on revenue of $40.8 billion."
