Working people at Verizon and Verizon Wireless have returned to work victorious after striking for 6 weeks. They have the pride of knowing their hard work resulted in big gains for themselves and their co-workers, as only good union jobs can deliver.

Verizon is adding 1,300 new jobs on the East Coast and even reversing its plan to outsource hundreds of jobs. Verizon Wireless retail professionals in Brooklyn, New York, and Everett, Massachusetts, also won their first contract ever as a result of the strike.

GoodElectronics congratulates the working people at Verizon on this victory.
