45 Days of Solidarity


The strike by 39,000 Verizon workers — members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) — ended after forty-five days with a tentative agreement announced late last week. Only partial details are available as union members prepare for a ratification vote.
Danny Katch of Socialist Worker interviewed a CWA shop steward in New York City about the high stakes in the strike and the lessons that the labor movement can take away from this battle.
