Statement from Borough President Diaz
RE: End of Verizon Employee Strike
“I am happy to hear that Verizon has agreed to come back to the table to negotiate in good faith with their employees. I hope that these new negotiations will preserve the solid, middle-class jobs that the unions were fighting to protect, and I look forward to a speedy resolution to their contract dispute. The hard–working men and women who are employed by Verizon deserve a fair contract, and today’s agreement to end this strike appears to be a major step towards that goal,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
