Report: CWA accuses T-Mobile of creating illegal labor union

The Communications Workers of America accused of creating a company-controlledunion in violation of federal labor rules, Bloomberg News reported April 28.

In a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, the CWAclaimed that Brian Brueckman, a T-Mobile senior vice president, announced the creationof a group, called T-Voice, in June 2015 in a bid to tackle independent unions.The group reportedly included employee "representatives" from each callcenter, selected every six months by the company.

Arguing that the move was illegal, CWA President Chris Sheltonsaid in a statement that creating a company-controlled labor organization does notmake sense as a union should be headed by people elected by T-Mobile employees andnot by its CEO John Legere.

In 2015, the CWA won a ruling by the NLRB against T-Mobile overallegations of nationwidelabor law violations.
