Take the Pledge: I Won't Cross the Verizon Picket Line
"This fight is bigger than Verizon. Most of us have families and we really don't want to be out of work but we have to fight together." - KC Tucker, Verizon Wireless Worker from Brooklyn, NY
KC and 40,000 of her coworkers are still on strike, fighting for their future against corporate greed at Verizon and Verizon Wireless. They are walking in picket lines outside of work locations, including Verizon Wireless stores. Will you stand with them and sign the pledge promising not to cross the picket line?
Empty stores will send a powerful message to Verizon and other large corporations that enough is enough.
All working people deserve to make a good living and have a good life.
This strike is about doing whatever it takes to make sure the needs of working families in our country are met, instead of just standing by as a handful of individuals get richer and richer. It's about keeping good jobs in our communities, instead of forcing working people to relocate or sending the jobs overseas.
