AT&T buys T-Mobile for $39 billion

This makes the cellphone giant the largest in the nation and weeds out a competitor.

AT&T has 266,590 employees, while T-Mobile has 37,795, according to their fact sheet.

Here’s what AT&T says in a news release about the post-purchase workforce:

“Post-closing, AT&T intends to tap into the significant knowledge and expertise held by employees of both AT&T and T-Mobile USA to succeed. AT&T is the only major U.S. wireless company with a union workforce, offering leading wages, benefits, training and development for employees. The combined company will continue to have a strong employee and operations base in the Seattle area (where T-Mobile is based).”

How else will this developing merger affect employees and how should the two companies communicate the changes to them?
