Pet owners everywhere will be excited to learn that we’ll soon be able to blast our dearly departed dogs into space for the bargain price of $995. For that, you get a portion of your pet’s ashes—cats can come, too—shot up into the atmosphere, where they will experience weightlessness before eventually returning safely to Earth. The company Celestis Pets just announced the service, along with a few premium options: You can give your dead pawsmonaut a few laps around Earth for $4,995, or you can shoot for the moon or a “permanent celestial journey” for $12,500.

They should have just played a game of attrition and let people opt in as they're hired or get pissed at their phones. Because $40 a month for an iphone seems like a pretty good deal. The strings attached aren't that onerous ...It's just that they're now charging for something they used to provide. Current employees should be phased in over a year or two or really, this shouldn't even have been brought up this way. Just implement it for new hires and no one is upset.

There's some precedent to that, via a vis uniforms. Unions successfully argue that if a company requires the worker bee to wear a uniform, then the company buys the uniform and launders it.

So you could contend that they should buy you the phone and launder it. 

 
generally, workers in a job needing uniforms know that when hired.

No, none of this is in my contract. I'm not required to be on call 24/7 but the phone definitely made it more easy to be able to answer emails etc. from home. Honestly if a patient is having an emergency, I do want to know, and be involved as much as I can. 
I honestly dont think that they really had a strategic plan with phones. We used to have pagers, and they switched to BB's so that we could get our email.  Now it's an iphone, and honestly, they're not handling it all that well, either. I dropped my phone and broke the screen, I brought it to IS knowing that it could be fixed. Their solution was to give me a brand new phone. Stoopit!
I agree with your last statement, and Intend to do exactly what you say I should.... we'll see.     

 
I worked for a company that pulled shit like that. For a while they figured that they could save money by giving people a small subsidy towards their personal cell phones but then decided they weren't supposed to do that.  Then they asked me for a cost code to cover the extra they paid me before they cut it off (my response - {#Boohoo}) Then they ruled that even incidental personal use of your company phone was inappropriate (even if you were in the middle of freaking nowhere and even though incidental personal use of your landline was ok).  So we were supposed to reimburse a buck or so for calls.  Then they decided we needed to reimburse them for the cost of processing the reimbursements...

They also were happy for you to set up your personal home computer to do email but claimed the right to come in at any time to inspect your computer if you used it to do any company work.  Needless to say I kept a strong physical fire wall between my personal computing and my work computing.

Now my crew really should have smart phones or iPads to check fire emergency warnings when out in the bush but the commercial IT company gets paid about $600 per year on top of all the other charges (plus a bunch of initial charges). The real question is, who agreed to that contract with them?

  Some staff still have pagers, I'd be fine to go back to a pager. The issue is that you can't get your email through a pager, but I will ask about a pager to replace the phone.
