AFL-CIO Supports Verizon Workers in Strike over Bad Faith Negotiations

WASHINGTON - Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the Verizon Workers Strike:

The AFL-CIO stands in solidarity with the Communications Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers fighting for a fair contract. The 39,000 working people who went on strike this morning at Verizon deserve a fair contract that provides stability and acceptable working conditions.

39 Billion profit over three years, and the workers of this greedy company can't bargain for a piece of those profits they helped produce? It's not like Verizon is on the ropes wondering how they'll survive in this industry.
