You Go Girl!..And the SBC Strike

My old friend Tavia Evans (Missouri Scholars Academy class of '95; Crossroads School class of '97; Northwestern J-School class of '01) has switched bylines from the St. Louis American to the Post-Dispatch.

Her byline is on today's story "Union workers at SBC plan 4-day strike."

Oh - and speaking of that strike. The Communications Workers of America is organizing anybody who wants to sign up to switch local phone service - in the event of a strike - from SBC to AT&T.

Go to http://www.fairnessatsbc.com to sign the pledge; you just might get a call from AT&T tonight.

The issues? Health insurance premiums, and outsourcing of jobs in the high-tech sector like VoIP, Wi-Fi and DSL to companies like Accenture (formerly Andersen Consulting...), many of which then are offshored to India, China and the Philippines.
