Dish Network and EchoStar, both based in suburbs of Denver, Colorado, merged on December 31st 2023. The news was filed to local regulators under the WARN (Worker Readjustment and Retraining Notification Act) rules which apply in Colorado.

Those affected include 80 ‘Wireless Senior Reps’ and 25 ‘Intermediate Customer Service and Tech Reps’.

Dish Network, prior to the merger, had suffered losses and in Q3 reported losses of $139 million amidst falling revenues (down from $4.1 billion in 2022 to $3.7 billion).
