Breaking – Verizon Workers Strike!

Breaking within the hour, 45,ooo Verizon workers in the Northeast Corridor from Boston to Washington D.C. have gone on strike after negotiations broke down over pension and health care benefits cuts. Over 10,000 are represented by the International Brotherhood of Electronic Workers amd Communications Workers of America 1101. Verizon is the largest domestic wireless carrier and has recently reported the highest number of new wireless clients, and increased its revenue 2.8% in the second quarter to $27.5 billion.

Verizon is also a card-carrying ALEC member, serving on the ALEC Telecommunications and Information Technology Task Force.
