Telecommunication companies are pressured to produce bigger, better, or faster service. Global communications faced competition on the consumer level. New calling features and suites of local and long-distance services helped, but the industry suffered at the hands of cable television providers.
To down size the domestic call centers meant a lot of employees would lose their jobs if they werent able to relocate. Moving call centers would save on unit prices for handling calls by 40% . The Board of Global Communications decided to stay in the competition by agreeing to enter and compete in local markets with expansion into India and Ireland. Since Global telecommunications company wasn't prepared for stock value to depreciate. Three years ago stock at global sold at 28 dollars a share. With all the competitors advancing in technical sophistification, Global couldn't keep up and stocks failed to 11 dollars a share almost a 50% a depreciation in total sales coming through Global. Global plans to allie with satellite companies to offer video services and sattelite provider to offer video services. Partnering with wireless providers offers a chance to compete with local markets and be a part of the global industry.

The plan was necessary for the company's long term growth, which would give the more members and benefit their current members. At Union, headquarters they disagree with the plan of going global and want the board to reconsider their ploy to move call centers to Ireland and India. Team Leaders convinced the employees that they are the reason for the business success. The way employees are being treated could make them work for other companies competing against them because they do not honor ethical values. Had they informed union and union informed workers they would have an option of staying on bored or leaving the job.
