Solidarity with Verizon Workers

Yesterday members of the Solidarity Committee  of CNY joined Verizon workers in downtown Syracuse for an informational picket. The contract of 35,000 unionized Verizon workers expires on Sunday at 12:01 am. Key issues in the negotiations between Communications Workers of America and Verizon include job security, outsourcing, health care, and pensions. Verizon, which made more than $19 billion in profits over the last four years, is trying to short change its workers. Last week, CWA members voted to authorize a strike against Verizon if an agreement is not reached.
