Filed under: Layoffs, Qwest

We have been chronicling (anecdotally) the Qwest layoffs for the past few months, and now the company has disclosed a cumulative number: 1,200 jobs, or 3 percent of its workforce. Based on our conversations with Qwest employees, that number seems awfully low.

Sounds like QWEST negotiatd in bad faith a union contract. CWA members should fire ther union immedately by not paying anymore dues

As employees are shown the door, an employer like Qwest may be wise to hang onto their e-mail records. –Ben

I cant believe what qwest has gotten away with over the years. My Dad has worked for qwest for about 40 years. He has paid his dues, he has given his life to this company with nothing to show for it, the CWA is useless and the people running the company and the unions are all crooks Now they will be subbing out his job to save money. The CEO’s continue to get fat checks provided by the blood sweet and tears of real working men. F%$K QWEST AND THE GREADY PIGS THAT RUN IT!!!!
