August 9, 2011: Take action to support 45,000 workers on strike to save good union jobs at Verizon.
In the last four years, Verizon made $19 billion in profits. But management is demanding across-the-board concessions, including steep cuts in workers' healthcare and pensions.
Sound familiar? Many Teamsters have faced similar demands for concessions.
CWA members are saying No Way. They've put up picket lines at Verizon from Massachusetts to Virginia and they've launched a leafleting campaign at Verizon Wireless stores.
Teamsters and other working people are showing their support. UPS and waste drivers have refused to cross picket lines. An ice cream driver even stopped and handed out free ice cream at one of the picket lines!
