The Communications Workers of America (CWA) union in District 9 said it has filed a motion with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) so that it can be part of the CPUC's review of the proposed T-Mobile and Sprint merger. The merger was announced in April, with clearance filed to the FCC in June. The FCC has since said it would need more time to review the merger. CPUC said in July that it would look closely at the transaction, to make sure it was in the public interest for California residents.
