NEARLY 40,000 VERIZON workers are heading back to work tomorrow after a six-and-half-week strike.
Last week Verizon reached a tentative agreement with the Communications Workers of America and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers to end a strike that began April 13th. The new contract still needs to be voted on by union members, but workers agreed to return to work. Once the contract is ratified, Verizon plans to hire another 1,400 union workers.
