Verizon last week rejected CWA's latest contract proposal, reports CWA District 2. "In fact, almost every proposal the union has placed on the table has been rejected by the company," says CWA. Contracts covering nearly 40,000 CWA and IBEW workers at Verizon expired last August. Verizon "is still not hearing us so it is more important than ever that we take this fight to a new level," CWA told its members. "Tell Verizon management that we demand a fair contract and let them know that we are ready to STRIKE to get one! Mobilize! Mobilize! Mobilize!"
