Dear Intel Employee:
Beware of these key concurrent, contradictory,
and questionable events in recent months at Intel and realize the sly strategy
behind them and devious tactics implemented in fulfilling them:
Targeting for terminating through R&R
Aggressive hiring from colleges
Nationally and persistently claiming that
Intel has a "severe shortage of skilled labor"
We have been informed that Intel is down
sizing by more than 10,000 American employees in 1998 although the company
is claiming that it will only be laying off 3,000 employees. This reduction
in work force will be accomplished by the following means:
For every redeployed employee there must
be an open position in Intel; otherwise the redeployment will turn into
and is meant to be a torturous termination.
When there is a hiring freeze and Intel
is hiring from colleges it means that older employees are being replaced
with cheaper RCG's.
If Intel is constantly telling to its
employees that "employees are our greatest asset", but is constantly and
shamelessly plotting against them, Intel is flatly lying to its employees.
If Intel is laying off, obviously it means
there is a surplus of employees. But, if Intel is telling to media,
American public and legislators that it has "sever shortage of skilled
labor", Intel is flatly lying to masses of people and misleading our legislators
to change the immigration law only to replace American employees with cheap
We all know that Intel has software development
labs in Ireland, Israel, and China and presently hiring in those countries.
We also know that beyond its needs, Intel also has manufacturing plants
in foreign countries. But Intel is threatening uninformed legislators
and President Clinton that if they do not pass the H-1B visa bill, Intel
will transfer all of its software development and engineering jobs to other
countries. This UN-American act is nothing but bullying, cheating
and lying to legislators and the President of United States. H-1B
visa bill will allow Intel and like minded corporations to import 515,000
foreign workers by year 2002, which will render older American workers
out of work, lower the wages, and undermine the American standard of living.
This is the time that we have to stop
Intel from cheating and victimizing the innocent employees.
By forcing employees out by intimidating
them through CAP.
By offering a separation package and implicitly
creating a fear of losing their jobs if the package is not accepted. This
enticement is nothing but inducement of a forced resignation and Intel
calls it attrition.
By not allowing employees who are on Medical
Leave of Absence (MLA) to return to work.
By placing masses of employees in redeployment
pools to find nonexistent jobs and then terminating them if they were unable
to find a job at Intel.
We need to get united and take action
and we have to show to the public the true face and intentions of Intel.
