A very telling blurb from the link in the op;
"Workers have been further incensed by remarks made in a memo from an AT&T executive, Betsy Farrell. In the memo, obtained by the Times, Farrell writes that when workers leave their jobs, "The company doesn't suffer. In fact, these actions help us financially when we don't pay you."

Sounds to me like weak ground to stand on if your employer can function fine without you.

Based on the statement ole betsy made in her memo, it would not surprise me to hear of a reduction in AT&T's workforce. I mean if it really is a financial benefit to the company when these people walk out.

In fact the replacement workers are supervisors and vendors. Do you believe they number the same as the staff that walked?

The remark was telling in that Betsy demonstrated disdain for the workers - not the best strategy in a negotiation and not one quality managers would ever do.

I posted that to tweak the nose of the self righteous. Nothing contemporary Republicans stand for is consistent with the teachings of Christ.

I do believe your christology is flawed. But that's your problem. Not mine.

Yes, because Christ wanted everyone dependent on the government.

Oh, wait, that's Obama. But I understand that stupid and gullible people get them confused.

I agree she showed disdain, and it looks to me that is her negotiation tactic. Sounds to me like she doesn't plan on caving to ANY demands. Since it isn't a civil service job, the workers can go back to work at at&t or find another job. Betsy sounds like she doesnt care which they do, which in itself is strong position to negotiate from.

It maybe a 'strong' position from which to negotiate but brinkmanship can win the battle and lose the war. Unhappy and resentful employees need not be overt in their displeasure.
