BT Employees go on BlackBerry Mini-Strike
It's not just US users (and abusers) that are annoyed at after hours BlackBerry use. 13,000 employees of UK telecom BT are switching off their PCs and BlackBerrys and following a strict 36 hour work week in a sort of mini-strike. A spokesperson said they hope to show BT just how much extra work they get out of employees because of the flexibility BlackBerrys offer. They expect to use up their contractual 36 hours by Thursday, though they're only starting the blackout tomorrow. If you're living in the UK, I hope for your sake that your service doesn't go out.
