More Than 40,000 Verizon Workers Will Have A Strike

Verizon workers strike, Verizon

Verizon will have a pretty big headache when more than 40,000 Verizon workers are preparing to go on strike at 6 a.m. ET on Wednesday if they have not reached a new labor agreement with the company.

The Verizon workers who are mostly service their traditional phone business have gone without a contract since August, according to the Communication Workers of America. The union says they are doing everything to prevent Verizon from moving jobs offshore or cutting benefits for injured workers.

Verizon said that if the strike goes forward, the company is prepared to continue to serve its customers. It said that thousands of non-union workers have been trained to cover new assignments in the event of a strike.
