UPDATED: March 22nd National Day of Action: CWA and IBEW at Verizon, the Fight for a Fair Contract Continues | Working Families United for New Jersey

5-7 PM Thursday
Manchester and Portsmouth NH

Thursday March 22 Stand in Solidarity with our brothers and sisters in CWA!

From CWA: 

Last August, 45,000 members of CWA and IBEW went on strike in order to pressure Verizon to bargain. The company went back to the negotiating table, but many issues remain unresolved and no contract is in sight. Verizon wants to eliminate jobs and promote outsourcing. Workers want to save their health benefits. 

We need to preserve middle class jobs and to fight against unrestrained corporate greed. Verizon’s top five executives made $283 million in the last 4 years, and from 2008-2010 Verizon did not pay any federal corporate income taxes. Despite billions in profits, Verizon is targeting worker health benefits and jobs that provide a middle class standard of living. 

Now is the time to show our solidarity and support for our brothers and sisters in CWA and IBEW. Be there for them and for yourselves on the March 22nd Day of Action! Details will be forthcoming on how you can participate in the March 22nd Day of Action for Verizon workers.

I have also included a Flyer (right) about the local CWA action at the Verizon Wireless Store on South Willow Street, A OR Verizon Wireless Store 1801 Woodbury Ave, Portsmouth, NH from 5-7.  Please make an effort to stop and take part of the this event.  I will be there to hand out information and show my support.  For more information contact Felicia at 

Below is a short video from CWA that talks about the struggles that CWA has had with Verizon and negotiating their new contract.
