For several weeks Wisconsin workers have been standing in solidarity with the Communications Workers of America (C.W.A) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (I.B.E.W) of Verizon Wireless who have been working without a contract.
Even though the strike has ended, Verizon Wireless refuses to bargain in good faith with its workers. 45,000 Verizon workers are fighting for a fair contract and to preserve the middle class and the American Dream in the Northeast.
If wealthy corporations like Verizon continue to outsource jobs and hold down worker wages, there is no hope for an economic recovery.

“Last Wednesday we went out in front of Verizon stores in the area to pass out fliers letting people know about the clash between Verizon and their workers. Even in the more conservative town of Brookfield we found a lot of people expressing concern for the workers. A number of folks who were shocked because they thought the issue was already settled. It just goes to show how important it is to educate people,” explained Emily Ruf of Milwaukee.
