Update To-> Boston: Stand with IBEW and CWA on March 13th in a practice picket against Verizon

Verizon workers have been proactive in their road to contract negotiations in the coming months, I admire their campaign. Heres some updates and views from their March 13th. practice picketing. From IBEW Local 2222:

185 Franklin St

On March 6 and 13, telephone workers took to the streets in front of many Verizon facilities to engage in "practice picketing" in preparation for upcoming negotiations with Verizon management for a new labor agreement. IBEW and CWA members are demanding that Verizon honor its existing contract with the unions and "tear down the wall" that is dividing union members in the core telecom business from workers in the Verizon Wireless and Verizon Business subsidiaries.

This is the first of many more Mobilization activities that will be taking place as we approach our contract deadline of August 2, 2008. To view more photos please click HERE.
