Ha. You forget how many thousands of people are begging for these jobs who would happily - HAPPILY - come in and serve as strike-breakers. And frankly I think they'd learn fast enough to get the job done. We're not anywhere near the special skilled snowflakes we think we are.

Absolutely. I think all it might take is the leadership offering couple of $$ more for people to sway sides. But if the collective still refuse, we might have a union for sure.

Exactly

MDs are already scrambling now with extreme pressure from the clients for business continuity, while they will be frantically calling Deloitte and PWC for support. Accenture’s clients are slowly evaporating into a speck of gold dust.

P1 as in random drug testing after one is already on the job??

Sure fire driver to push us to get our clients to let us do more off-shoring while cutting the price to the client. They don't want a union to succeed and have their employees join.

Conalyst Union extends beyond abstract geographical lines. It’s actually spearheaded by consultants and analysts in India and Philippines.

What are your reasonable demands?

1) is likely possible.. but how much are you looking for especially considering reducing your hours/availability in 2 & 3?, 2) is out of step with what is needed to serve clients and run the business, so likely not that reasonable, 3) they can send whenever they want, negotiate when you need to turn things around

I think a more reasonable movement would be state and federal bills that set better labor standards in tech and consulting. Something close to what they have in the EU would be wonderful. It isn’t just our industry that rides employees hard until they burn out or quit.
