Verizon workers are still on strike across the country and dozens of them are here in our area.
They walked off the job on Wednesday and are still on strike at this time.
Employees are calling for more job security.
They’d like their jobs to stay here in the area instead of being sent overseas.
The Vice President of a local union chapter, Barb Carson says she hopes the strike won’t last much longer, however, there’s not much progress with contract negotiations at this time, so it’s unclear just how long it will last.
The strike, said to be one of the largest in Verizon’s history, could interrupt service for countless customers although the company says they have trained non-union workers to fill in.
