Brothers and Sisters, 10,000 of our IBEW Brothers and Sisters that are employed with Verizon back East are currently on strike, along with 26,000 CWA members. They have been walking the lines for over a month, mostly over benefit roll backs, working conditions and outsourcing of their jobs, as I shared with you in a past communication.
Being on strike is a hardship for every family. Some may have resources that they can turn to in these difficult times, but others will have extraordinary needs that they’ve been struggling to meet even before the strike.
