Four Hours of Pay to Fight for Fairness
Defeat Corporate Greed by helping our CWA and IBEW brothers and sisters of Verizon East. 39,000 members have been on strike for 5 weeks and need our support.
Their Fight Is Our Fight and Our Fight is Their Fight.
CWA and IBEW Members are fighting for all Labor Unions in this Country. Corporate America is watching. If Verizon beats us back, the tone will be set for the rest of us. We have to fight!
The CWA relief fund pays strikers $200.00 a week. It helps but does not go a long way. District 9 is asking all workers in All Sectors to donate Four Hours of Pay to Fight for Fairness to the website below.
Donations to the Verizon Striking Families Solidarity Fund will be used exclusively to assist striking families with special needs who are facing very difficult financial circumstances. Being on strike is a hardship for every family. Checks should be made out to:
Verizon Striking Families Solidarity Fund and mailed to Strikers Solidarity Fund, 501 Third St NW, Washington DC 20001.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR AT&T MEMBERS: Your AT&T Bargaining team is asking all of our AT&T Sisters and Brothers to donate Four Hours of Pay for Fairness, each month if you can, to assist the striking families until the strike is over or until we go on strike ourselves. Pay it forward!
Verizon East CWA members are fighting back similar issues as we are here in District 9: VZ wants to- Gut Job Security- Contract Out more work- Freeze Pensions at 30 Years of Service- Shut Down Our Call Centers and offshore the work to Mexico and the Philippines. If the Unions don’t accept those terms, Verizon will require Technicians to work away from home for as long as two months at a time, anywhere within the Verizon footprint, without seeing their families.
Verizon has also refused to negotiate any improvements in wages, benefits or working conditions for Verizon Wireless Retail Workers who formed a union in 2014.
Verizon made $39 billion in profits over the last three years and $1.8 billion a month in profits over the first three months of 2016. This is a prime example of Corporate Greed- devastating the jobs of the workers who built Verizon and destroying the families!
