Vision of an employee in strike
Being a part of Nortel employees in strike, I wish to make some comments with regard to what I was able to read on this blog.
- We all knew that gas bottles were empty: this "exercise" was there only to alert the media... and this has been a real success: all the TV chanels spoke of Nortel during the day, and then we had the visit of the Industry Minister..
- I remind that 465 peoples are laid-off with probably no or ridiculous severance even after more than 10 years spent for this company.... while we are speaking about a brankrupt clearly organized by the management in NA, the same management who got 45 M$ distributed a few weeks ago as "incentive".
About the 100 k€ claimed, nobody really believe we'll get them, but as Oscar wilde used to say "
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land amoung the stars".
I'm proud of this strike: I don't want to be f.... like our UK Nortel colleagues a few weeks ago. French may have many defaults...but we have balls in our pants :)
