Irony: TVA Job Outsourcing is A Threat to Our Recovery

The Tennessee Valley Authority was created in 1933 as part of the New Deal President FDR spearheaded in the wake of the Great Depression. It was a key piece of a desperately needed recovery plan.

Today, in another time of severe economic crisis rivaling that of its origin, the Tennessee Valley Authority is planning to outsource hundreds of IT jobs out of the region.

The TVA operated outside of its own decision-making process and lacked transparency with its employees and their union. This decision could cost the region nearly $88 million.

This is not a trend any American can afford.

The International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers has launched a digital action campaign to combat the decision. Show your solidarity and sign now.
