Verizon Seeks Injunctions Against Strikers

It would seem that Verizon isn't happy with striking workers blocking access to the company offices and has asked for an injunction. For those of you that missed it, this is a follow up to the story we originally posted over the weekend (here).

Verizon Communications Inc has sought court injunctions to prevent striking workers from blocking access to the company's facilities, a spokesman said on the third day of a strike involving almost half of the company's wireline employees. Verizon has sought injunctions to prevent "illegal" and "reprehensible" strike activities such as keeping managers out of buildings, according to company spokesman Rich Young.
