Verizon Strike

There is a very good chance that at 6:00am tomorrow April 13th our CWA Union brothers and sisters at Verizon will be on strike. If this does happen we are going to supprt them any way we can. First and foremost do not cross any picket lines. If you need to gain access to a building they are picketing there is to be another means of entrance made available to you. As usual Wear RED on Thursdays. If you see them picketing tell them you support them and you can join them on the picket line.
