VICTORY AT VERIZON AND VERIZON WIRELESS | 2016 STRIKE

After a historic 6.5 week strike, nearly 40,000 Verizon workers celebrated big gains after reaching a tentative agreement with the company.

The unity and determination of our members proved that management was wrong. Our members stood up and fought back, and turned back virtually every concession that remained on the table when we went on strike on April 13, 2016. 

For Verizon Wireless retail store workers in Brooklyn, NY, and Everett, Mass., who went on strike for the first time in history, their first-ever contract makes major improvements in job security and other areas.

“The ratification of these hard-won contracts cements an incredible victory for the nearly 40,000 courageous workers who put everything on the line to protect the good jobs for their families and for all American families,” said Dennis Trainor, Vice President, CWA District 1. “When working people come together as a union, we can make a difference in improving wages and providing stability for families.”
