June 22 is Day of Action for Verizon and Verizon Wireless Workers

Join thousands of union members and community partners in a National Day of Action for Verizon workers on June 22.

Activists again will protest the telecommunications giant’s insatiable greed. Verigreedy Verizon is a $100 billion company that has made tens of billions in profits, but when it comes to the 45,000 workers who made the Verizon’s success possible, suddenly it cries broke.

In addition to sky high executive salaries, the average Verizon board member is paid about $230,000 – that’s three times the salary of a top, full-time Verizon worker with years of experience. Meanwhile, Verizon continues to demand big cuts in compensation from workers.

The June 22 events will include new actions and worksite activities, so contact your local union and check out www.unityatverizon.com for the latest.
