UPDATE: CWA, IBEW Reach Agreement on Bargaining with Verizon

After striking and picketing outside of several Verizon Wireless stores, Communications Workers of America (CWA), International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), and Verizon have reached a bargaining agreement. Union members will return to work on Tuesday, August 23.

Both AFGE National Secretary-Treasurer J. David Cox and National Vice President/Women’s Fair Practices Director Augusta Thomas joined other AFGE activists to rally in support of CWA and IBEW members.

In a statement released by CWA and IBEW, both unions declared their gratitude for the support:  “We appreciate the unity of our members and the support of so many in the greater community. Now we will focus on bargaining fairly and moving forward.”
