Five Years Later


When the power of Love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
- Jimi Hendrix

Five years ago - the CWA AND AT&T DISCARDED US.

Some folks have new jobs and NEW CAREERS.
Some are HOLDING ON to what they have, and STILL LOOKING for MEANINGFUL WORK.
Some cling to the belief that RETRAINING is the answer.
Some lost A LOT.
Some lost HOPE.
Some SEE NO LIGHT and may be ready to GIVE UP.

Some remain DISGUSTED by OUTSOURCING, the RECESSION, and things like the SELF SERVING INTERESTS of unions DISGUISED as ORGANIZED LABOR MOVEMENTS - especially when creeps like CWA big-shot RALPH MALY are mentioned.

Four years ago the Supreme Court ruled AGE BIAS NEED NOT BE DELIBERATE.

Now this…

IF THE CWA DESERVES ANY RESPECT - they’d be supporting the EEOC, instead of the SAME OLD CRAP.

The EEOC filed a Complaint in August of this year concerning AT&T’s practice of NOT REHIRING PEOPLE who went out on VRIP and other force reduction programs. The Complaint says that this is part of a PATTERN of AGE DISCRIMINATION. Over the years, a lot of people have commented about being blacklisted from being rehired.

The EEOC attorney who is handling the case is Louis Graziano. His email address and telephone number are 212-336-3721.

This case is not associated with the CASH BALANCE CASE, Engers vs. AT&T. 

The complaint will be on the AT&T RETIREES WEBSITE.
