Verizon strikers denounce federal mediation and CWA news blackout [telecom]

By Steve Light and Alan Whyte

A World Socialist Web Site Verizon Strike Newsletter reporting team spoke to striking Verizon workers on the picket line in New York City and Virginia. Workers expressed concern over the intervention of the Obama administration in the contract talks and the news blackout being imposed by the leadership of the Communication Workers of America (CWA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).

Workers said they were determined to defeat any attempt by the unions to repeat the 2011 sellout, when a strike was ended without a contract and concessions were imposed by a federal mediator.
