The final chapter in the historic 45-day Verizon strike was written when the workers overwhelmingly voted on June 17 to ratify new contracts. “It was a tough strike, but this contract, which secures good jobs in our communities and preserve workers’ standard of living shows what can happen when we stand together. I am so proud of our members for standing up for themselves, our communities, the customers and their families," said Ed Mooney, Vice President, CWA District 2-13. Verizon has also agreed to add 1,300 new East Coast call center jobs, and reverse several other outsourcing initiatives that will create new field technician jobs. Watch their journey to a #VictoryatVerizon in this powerful video where the workers demonstrate their unity, solidarity and unwavering dedication to fighting for what's right.
