Instructions for Leafleting at Verizon Wireless Stores

Please review the Instructions for Leafleting at Verizon Wireless Stores (click to download) before engaging in any activity at or near a Verizon Wireless store. It is very important that these instructions be followed. If you don’t understand the Instructions, please contact your District mobilization coordinator.

Also, please do not go into a Verizon Wireless store while you are engaged in mobilization activity and please make sure that no one else in your group goes into the store.

Our mobilization goal is to let the public know about our contract fight with Verizon Wireless and to persuade people not to buy Verizon Wireless until we get a fair contract. We are not trying to interfere with the conduct of their operations. Spread the word – but do it outside the store and follow the instructions.

Thanks for your support and solidarity!
