Striking Verizon Workers Win Big Gains


Striking Verizon Workers Win Big Gains

Communications Workers of America

WASHINGTON - Nearly 40,000 Verizon workers who have been on strike since April 13 are celebrating big gains after coming to an agreement in principle with the company. After 44 days of the largest strike in recent history, striking CWA members have achieved our major goals of improving working families’ standard of living, creating good union jobs in our communities and achieving a first contract for wireless retail store workers.



I'll wait until I hear from the rank-and-file and see how they vote for the new contract before I believe this news release.
