<nettime> Verizon Strike


Here is a new post from Information Observatory 

Strike
April 21, 2016

"After nine months of frustrated bargaining, 39,000 workers from Virginia to Massachusetts called a strike against Verizon on 13 April. Represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), these telecom workers are pushing back. Their goal is to preserve job quality and security... This is the biggest U.S. strike in five years – in fact, since CWA last took action in 2011. This is telling, because it shows that the telecommunications sector remains a bastion of organized labor’s strength – in a country where just 6.7% of the private sector is unionized."
