Germans in town to support T-Mobile workers

As part of a multi-year organizing campaign led by the Communications Workers of America, members of a 12-person delegation of Deutsche Telekom workers from Germany will be in Nashville today to offer support to local T-Mobile USA workers looking to unionize.

Participants from the delegation will join the T-Mobile employees and community members at the CWA Local 3808 office, located at 3340 Perimeter Hill Ave., to discuss what is a global campaign to “ensure every person has a voice on the job at T-Mobile USA,” according to CWA.

Deutsche Telekom is the German parent company (which is 30 percent owned by the German government) of T-Mobile USA, the fourth largest wireless provider in the United States. Though T-Mobile has recognized workers’ rights in Germany and their workers play an active role in successfully managing the company, it has interfered with workers’ efforts to form unions in the United States, according to CWA officials. During today’s event, workers and community leaders intend to show how this “double standard,” CWA officials said, is hurting T-Mobile employees in Nashville.

Klaus Barthel, a member of the German Parliament is accompanying the delegation. Also attending the event will be Metro Councilman Jerry Maynard and Gary Moore, president of the Tennessee AFL-CIO Labor Council.


UPDATE: A representative of T-Mobile sent us the following statement on the delegation and CWA campaign.

"T-Mobile is a service-oriented company and an award-winning employer. T-Mobile employees receive great benefits, a positive work environment, career development opportunities and open, ongoing communication with management. T-Mobile has received numerous awards for its employment and business practices including Ethisphere Institute’s 2011 World’s most ethical companies, G.I. Jobs 2012 Top 100 Military Friendly Employers and more.

T-Mobile respects the rights of unions to exist and we recognize and respect our employees' rights to organize or to refrain from organizing. That said, we remain convinced that it is better for both T-Mobile employees and our business to maintain a direct working relationship between management and employees. The vast majority of T-Mobile employees have chosen not to be represented by a union."

Healthways and Gallup have expanded their research into the well-being of the world's citizens into Germany. There, they have found that more people are positive about their work environment but not as upbeat about their prospects as in the United States and Britain.

The data, which can be broken down by demographics, such as gender, race, age, income, education, location and more, shows that Germans partake in more healthy behaviors and have better access to basic resources than their American or British peers, yet are decidedly pessimistic in how they evaluate their current lives and the future.
