Verizon: 2011 Media Coverage

Several articles discuss the iWont campaign to ask VZ Wireless customers not to upgrade to a new iPhone until Verizon and Verizon Wireless stop trying to downgrade middle-class jobs. Meanwhile, the Boston Herald speculates that Verizon workers may return to strike “Verizon can move this along as quickly as they want. All they have to do is try to come to agreement with us rather than trying to hit us over the head with major concessions.” says District 1 Vice-President, Chris Shelton.
