Verizon Bargaining Update
Verizon workers and customers are extremely frustrated that company executives are not more serious about bargaining. Today, CWA and IBEW met with Verizon to discuss the contract covering workers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., Virginia and West Virginia, but after 30 minutes and more demands to devastate workers' jobs, company executives left for the weekend.
“Workers already have put hundreds of millions of dollars in healthcare cost savings on the table. We simply cannot compromise on contract changes that would ship more work overseas and have our families separated for months at a time, said Ed Mooney, CWA District 2-13 vice president.
