Verizon Workers Go on Strike

As of this morning, 45K Verizon workers went on strike in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. The impasse rests on negotiations between the unions and Verizon management over benefits and employee procedure in the Verizon land line division. Wireless customers will not be affected.

Verizon said it has activated a contingency plan to ensure that customers see limited disruption during the strike..
