Verizon Workers Need Your Help

  • 12 April 2016

This morning, working people at Verizon went on strike. It’s never good when working families have to take this step, but Verizon workers felt they had no choice.

They’re fighting to create a better workplace for themselves and those who come after them. They aren’t going to give up until Verizon ends its push to send jobs overseas, stops intimidating Verizon Wireless workers trying to create a better future for themselves and their families, and drops its demands to cut retirement benefits, gut job security and make workers move away from their homes and families for months at a time just to keep their jobs.

Click here to immediately sign our petition to tell Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam, "Enough is enough. Settle a fair contract with working people at Verizon and Verizon Wireless now."
