A good employer if you're not British

Courtesy of Eric Lee and LabourStart

Some employers are bad employers no matter where you live. Think Wal-Mart or McDonald's. Those are employers that are consistently anti-union.

But other employers seem to accept trade unions in some countries -- and try to crush them in others. T-Mobile, a cellphone company owned by Deutsche Telekom, is in that category. In Britain, the company has even brought in US-based professional union-busters to stop an organizing drive by the Communication Workers Union (CWU). Nevertheless, union membership inside the company is growing.

The CWU, together with LabourStart, has launched a big global campaign to put pressure on the company to stop union-busting and to start talking.
