Northeast Verizon Workers Strike
August 7, 2011 - The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers website is reporting that over 45,000 IBEW and CWA brothers and sisters went on strike just minutes ago against Verizon.
The IBEW issued a news release containing background information, a direct statement from IBEW International President Edwin D. Hill on the status of contract negotiations, and links to related, impacted IBEW Local Unions involved. [More]
With AT&T contract negotiations not far away, in 2012, all members should follow this battle closely. Be ready to take action in support if the call goes out, and think mobilization, daily. A direct link to Verizon related information will be added on the IBEW Local Union 21 website in the days ahead, so just look for the STAY INFORMED ON UNITY@VERIZON link at http://www.ibew21.org soon.
Stay tuned ...
