The Verizon Strike is About More Than Dollars and Cents [telecom]

The Verizon Strike Is About More Than Dollars And Cents The real fight is over union jobs, period.

By Dave Jamieson Labor Reporter, The Huffington Post

On Thursday morning, Eddie Blackburn, a Verizon technician in Rhode Island, logged on to Facebook to send his colleagues a message. They were scheduled to lose their Verizon health coverage soon while out on strike. Blackburn urged his friends not to buckle and cross the picket line.

"I would personally rather die on that line than sell out my union, and friends I have broke bread with, shared birthdays and family events with, laughed and cried together," Blackburn wrote in a Facebook post. "I have worked with some of you for almost 20 years. Crossing the line for me is not an option, I ask the same from you."
