Thanks CWA/IBEW for throwing the retirees under the bus! You will never have my support in the future.
Wait to you see the new contract. You'll be eating your heart out. DUMB #$%$!
Who is this idiot who has nothing to do but post inane garbage? He really sounds like a bitter person.
I don't know what strike you are following, but it can't be the Verizon/CWA strike because Verizon is clearly losing this fight!
Obviously you haven't been paying attention. Verizon admits the strike is having a deleterious effect on their bottom line. As long as the strike continues, the more damage will be done. Why do you think Verizon wants to come back to the bargaining table? They are losing this war! GO UNION!
penthouse, do you live in a trailer in Golden Gate?
You either live in Port Royal, and are a rich spoiled ignoramus, or you live in Golden Gate and are simply and ignoramus. In either case, you are making yourself look really stupid!
hdiapos, You've got it backwards. In the past Verizon had little competition, so they could try and hold out, customer be damned. Now Verizon has to be concerned that if the strike goes on for any length of time customers may bolt to another company. That's why it is in Verizon's best interest to bargain in good faith and settle the strike.
You are very bitter, Did you get molested as a child? To end your pain, maybe you should cover yourself with chum and jump off the end of the Naples pier.
This accusation is totally false. I was a vice president of a CWA local for many years. The leadership NEVER encouraged violence or physical damage, never. What happens is that as time goes on, the members upon seeing that Verizon management will not negotiate in good faith, or even come to the table become frustrated the longer the strike lasts, and unfortunately some act out. This has happened at every strike since I can remember, and I was around in 1971 when we were ion the street for SEVEN MONTHS! If Verizon was smart, they would learn from history and get back to bargaining.
More false statements from this ignoramus. The support we are getting is unprecedented. Labor, both union and non-union realize that this is a fight to prevent the corporatists from destroying the middle class.
Sounds like you need your head busted with a baseball bat!
Bigroberts is just one of many dedicated employees who feel the frustration of doing the best job they can while being treated like an expensive tool by senior management. McAdams, I think you just shot yourself in the foot. This strike will go down in history as the changing point and end of concessionary bargaining. Maybe You need to sacrifice for a change. Do you really need to ad another car to your collection? Get back to the table and bargain in good faith!
You sound like a disgruntled manager or former manager. Your hatred is so vile that I think you should seek help.
