About 17,000 AT&T wireline technicians and call center employees went on strike in California and Nevada today while filing an unfair labor charge to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) alleging that AT&T violated federal law.
“The company has shown disrespect to the bargaining process by changing the work assignments of workers without bargaining as required by federal law,” the Communications Workers of America (CWA) union said in its strike announcement. “Further, AT&T reneged on an agreement to resolve the dispute without any explanation.”
The CWA said that AT&T “is asking its workers to do more for less—keeping them from their families with unpredictable overtime, undercutting pay and advancement, offshoring good jobs, and pushing more health care costs onto employees.”
Kudos to Sears Holdings Corp. (SHLD) for finally admitting what everyone already knew: it’s almost dead.
As TheStreet broke the news on Twitter Tuesday evening, Sears indicated in its newly filed annual report that “substantial doubt exists related to the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.” For those clickbait-loving headline writers out there with no financial services training: what Sears essentially said is that yes, it’s unsure if it could stay in business. Well, duh.
Sears’ cash position has melted from a high point of $1.7 billion for the 2009 calendar year to a mere $286 million to close out 2016. Revenue hasn’t grown since the credit boom lifted all ships in retail in 2006. The company hasn’t generated cash flow from its operations since 2006.

Uber president Jeff Jones is leaving the company after less than six months.
A source at the taxi booking app told the BBC the resignation was “completely unexpected”.
