My dad used to be President of the CWA in this area and he said Sykes would pull outta here before they unionize.
The reason that these companies like Sykes, Telemed, and Travelocity come to here is because this is a low-income area in a Right to Work State, which means the employer has more rights. They get tax deductions (save money) for bringing jobs here and throw out mediocre paying jobs. It's like coming up to a table of starving people and throwing down scrap. The scrap thrower is treated and awarded like a savior because they are bringing jobs and money even though it really is scraps
This is basically the out-scourcing INSIDE America. Areas like these are usually the last stops before companies make the jump over seas to India or the Philippines...

A/The Unions of old were formed for good reasons? Now any union would be worthless, because every "place of employment" that exist, they do so, by not allow "any persons" to aggressively come onto their property and tell them what they will or will not do. How would you like someone coming into your house,*that you worked, bought, and paid for, and in some cases, even built the damn thing," and then allow others to tell you what you will or won't do with it? Hog wash. I've worked for 3 different Unions and all three were and are corrupt and only want the Union dues that you pay each month through payroll automated deductions. You bunch of candy asses, that want others to help you keep your job, and get you higher wages, because you're too sorry, too unlearned, or just won't get off your lazy asses and get an education, so quit bitching about this and that, and don't even apply there, or work there, "if" you dislike them, or whatever your dumb ass reasons are. I hate the "WAY" Unions are now used to save the druggies, the lazy, sorry, and those that have no get up and go and are completely satisfied to make it only a meager wage and sit back hoping that others will come in, organize and unionize and give them more money for drugs and for their sorriness and laziness and I have zero sympathy for the ideal, the lazy, the drug addicts and those that want something for nothing. Now on the other hand, I do feel great sorrow for the working moms and dads that can't get a better paying job, having to work sometimes, two or more jobs to make ends meet, and they have little to nothing for actually working for all they have, due to the high cost of this ungodly economy that we've all created through greed, and non-common sense. Due to them having to work two jobs and having the get up and go, to go to work, as opposed to taking hand outs, I salute you/them...but to sorry ass persons that want Union protection to help them hold down a job, due to they won't take orders, obey the rules, and do the correct things, they need a Union to protect their lazy asses, I have no tolerance and no sympathy. You make me sick. GOD Bless the good, hard working and law abiding persons that are doing every possible thing they can, even to going to night school and online courses to try to help better themselves, I say give them more more, more incentives, and more love and adoration and cut them some slack, for they actually deserve it. MY TAKE. Been on every side of the fence that exist and until you do or have been, then shut the hell up. Like I stated, let someone come into your home, or business and tell you what you can and cannot do with it. Hell I'd rather blow it off the map first. Not in my house you won't.

Charlie,
There are so many Sykes centers across the country and across the world that the Wise site would close if a union came in. It's that simple. As I stated, certain employees are specifically taught how not to let a union through the door. There are even plans in place if a single employee says the word "union". So, It's not that simple.
