Verizon CWA on Strike in NYC

I'm a member of AFTRA so I'm a union worker. I stand in solidarity with the CWA who are striking against Verizon. I wish you all much success in your efforts. And if you're a Verizon customer you can help out striking employees by sending an email or calling customer service and urging the company to negotiate with the union to begin addressing some of the concessions.

They are free to picket. I am free to cross it. This is Amurika.

Verizon is running some cutting radio spots basically calling the strikers whining, ungrateful babies.

In fact, it may be a dead-ender. Landline workers striking for continued free healthcare for active and retired workers. Egads.

Maybe the union should be urged to negotiate with the company over concessions.

Believe me I am NOT pro-Verizon. I am pro-reality.
