Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless retail workers in Everett and Lynnwood, Wash., and Brooklyn, N.Y., voted to ratify their contracts last Friday. This first contract is a major milestone for the Everett and Lynnwood workers, who recently joined CWA, after overcoming years of poor working conditions, including understaffing and unlivable wages, along with aggressive union-busting efforts from Verizon.

This win and the latest organizing efforts by Verizon Wireless workers in Portland, Ore., and Flint, Mich., signal a growing movement among Verizon Wireless workers to build power and add to the labor momentum taking place nationwide.
