Growing anger amoung Verizon strikers [telecom]

A sellout contract is being prepared by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) as the strike by 40,000 Verizon workers on the East Coast of the United States enters its sixth week.

Since April 13, thousands of wire and call center workers at the world's second largest telecom company have been on strike in defense of their health care benefits, retirement and job security. The company, which has mounted a major strikebreaking operation, is demanding increased contributions to health insurance and the ability to shift workers around the country for months at a time.
