Much has been said about the potential impact of the longstanding ongoing union, T-Mobile and Sprint in the mobile sector, and the prices of competing cellular services during and after the multistate process. killed by the mega-deal, but as a result of the merger, much of the least discussed has to do with employment. That is, the job and / or the loss of a job, following the “T-Mobile” for birth.
This impressive number is (officially) with an estimated growth rate of up to 11,000 full-time employees, and in addition, the “Un-carrier” has become a fierce opponent of “paradise” that aims to build more than 600 new locations retail and five of the new customer experience centers to create nearly 12,000 new jobs, many of which are expected to boost the small-town economy.
Analysts and unions involved
The problem with these big promises is that they seem to be going against one of the inherent goals and principles set out in almost all combinations. These deals are all about “efficiency”, at least in part, according to a former FCC consultant, was quoted by NBC News.
In this case, efficiency means “getting rid of the redundant stores and the team”, which apparently is one thing, which even the judge mentioned as … before making the final decision to give the merger the go-ahead, however despite this, and all other concerns raised by the 13 state AGs and the District Attorney General of Columbia.
The Communications Workers of America union, fears of no less than 24,000 jobs across the country, can be eliminated as a result of “retail store closures overlapping postpaid and prepaid locations (Boost and MetroPCS locations”), with another 4,500 jobs or are expected to be eliminated in the near future as a result of multiple roles at corporate headquarters in Overland Park, Kan., and Bellevue, Washington. “
The plate remains a big question mark
It is clear that Boost Mobile, owned by Sprint, a prepaid brand to be sold to Dish Network, the terms and conditions of the contract, signed according to the wishes of the justice department’s concerns about the erosion of competition, however, the president of the National Association of Independent Wireless Resellers, an organization that owns the phone store, should not be optimistic about the future, with at least 8,000 convenience stores.
While some of them drive retail locations they are independently owned, while others remain on a double sprint on the property, and should, unless the Court intervenes to open it, there may be many who are closing their doors forever, it is necessary to many employee jobs, he is unlikely to return. Now, granted in the future of the country, the mobile network operator number four, has made great promises of its own, promising to compete against the New T-Mobile right away, and a welcoming Boost to employees and resellers, to obtain the “Dish family” , but many analysts are still skeptical of Charlie Ergs’ reliability.
Uncertainty is probably the biggest problem for some employees of T-Mobile, Sprint, Boost and Metro, but one thing that seems to be set in stone, at least according to one analyst, mergers are not the result of a larger number of jobs.
