  1. what is this strike about?

  2. The big issue is Verizon wants to pull back benefits because of the dollars they are losing on their land lines. They wanted to just mandate them and not come to the bargaining table. The workers went on strike because the company wouldn’t come to the table. I understand tonight they have agreed to do so and workers on going back on the job Monday night.
