IBM unions agree new global strategy to fight job cuts
IBM unions have agreed a new global strategy to fight thousands of job cuts and deteriorating working conditions at the computer services giant.

The Global Union Alliance @IBM, alongside UNI Global Union, IndustriALL Global Union and IndustriAll European Trade Union, will issue a series of demands to IBM management designed to protect the firm’s loyal workforce at a time of huge upheaval for IBMers. http://www.uniglobalunion.org/news/ibm-unions-agree-new-global-strategy-fight-job-cuts

Ginni Rometty:
top Off Shoring IBM USA jobs!
No tax breaks for companies that shift jobs offshore. Full transparency of how many jobs have been offshored, from what IBM US division and location, and where the jobs have been shifted to.

If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, want crops without plowing the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand..
It never did and never will... --Fredrick Douglass--
