The 39,000 workers on strike at Verizon, members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), have been on the picket line for five weeks. It’s the largest strike in the U.S. in five years–since the last walkout against the telecommunications giant–and the stakes are high, both for the workers directly involved and the labor movement in general. Join us to talk about the issues involved in the strike and how we can build support for Verizon workers!
