Unions, allies, and many union members and retirees have donated more than $548,000 to the Verizon Striking Families Solidarity Fund.

In thanking donors, CWA President Chris Shelton said that contributions are being used to assist CWA and IBEW strikers who have expenses that can't be covered in any other way. "Your support meant that our striking members would not be 'starved' back to work and would be able to keep up the fight. It made all the difference."

"We will never forget your unselfish act of solidarity, and I am very proud to stand with you as we Fight the Fight Together," Shelton said.
