Although it didn't address specific complaints leveled recently by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, EchoStar has reported on its relations with employees in the past.

The Teamsters, led by President General James Hoffa, told lawmakers in Washington, D.C., earlier in the month that EchoStar had a "deplorable track record of customer and labor relations." Hoffa also asked lawmakers for help in opposing the pending $26 billion merger between the satellite TV service and DirecTV.

In its 2001 annual report, EchoStar said it considers relations with its employees to be good. Although approximately 75 employees in two field offices have voted to unionize, EchoStar said it's not a party to any collective bargaining agreements. But the company said it's negotiating collective bargaining agreements at these offices.

EchoStar said it had approximately 11,000 employees as of Dec. 31.
