CWA Pushing to Unionize T-Mobile Employees

The Communications Workers of America is looking to partner with the union that represents Deutsche Telekom employees in Germany and organize a new joint union to represent T-Mobile USA's employees. The CWA would oversee the new union's efforts on behalf of T-Mobile USA employees in the U.S., and ver.di would continue to work with Deutsche Telekom's workers in Germany. The new union, called TUnion, would work in concert to make sure all workers receive fair treatment. T-Mobile has historically opposed unions within its ranks. Peter Dobrow, a spokesman for Bellevue, Wash.-based T-Mobile USA, said, "Despite the CWA's periodic organizing efforts for more than nine years, no group of T-Mobile employees has ever chosen to be represented by a union. While our company is always striving to find ways to improve, year after year, employees continue to view T-Mobile as a good place to work where they have no need for, or interest in, a union."
