Thousands of Verizon workers may go on strike Wednesday.
The strike could involve workers from Massachusetts down to Virginia.
40,000 Verizon employees are prepared to strike if they do not reach a new labor agreement with the telecom giant.
The workers primarily service the company’s traditional phone business.
They’ve gone without a contract since August.
Their union says its trying to stop Verizon from moving jobs offshore or cutting benefits for injured workers.
Verizon says the company has thousands of non-union workers trained to cover new assignments in the event of a strike.
