T-Mobile US Inc (NYSE:TMUS) sweeps problems under the carpet by poor treatment of employees, latest news reveals, – employees restricted of being able to discuss basic rights such as wages – violating a federal labour law.
A long standing issue at T-Mobile US Inc (NYSE:TMUS) of employee mistreatment and misrepresentation, the Communications Workers of America union have been lobbying for the staff at T-Mobile to join the union; who currently represent employees at Verizon and AT&T. Due to a clause in the employee handbook, workers at T-Mobile have been discouraged from discussing matters relating to wages and working conditions.
Provisions in the handbook barring employees from discussing matters with anyone other than human resources. Information has been released advising that should an employee disobey, disciplinary action will be taken; violations in some instances leading to an employee being fired.
To avoid disciplinary action, employees are remaining silent, not realising that if they all banded together, they would be able to enforce change that could in effect, change their work situation for the better, but unfortunately, employees are choosing to be silent in terms; unable to talk about basic needs such as their wages or conditions of work to neither their colleagues, nor the media.
A clause in the employee handbook prevented workers from being able to open up about their work conditions which have recently been declared as being illegal by administration law judge – Christine Dibble. Christine Dibble advised T-Mobile US Inc (NYSE:TMUS) to release an addendum to void their clause which prevented workers from talking with another person as well as to the media and instead – instate a clause that as an employee, they have the right to fairness and equality; the right to join a union, should they wish to.
A spokesman for T-Mobile US Inc (NYSE:TMUS) has advised that this is a technical glitch in the law and that there are presently no employees impacted with T-Mobile and as such, don’t feel a need to act on the judges’ decision to make changes, moving forward. The spokesman advised that issues presented are commonly experienced across the country.
