    CWA Local 2222 Verizon Strike

    As over 45,000 Verizon workers represented by the Communications Workers of America and International Brotherhood of Electric Workers strike up and down the East Coast to preserve middle class jobs, members of CWA Local 2222 picketed Verizon facilities in Springfield and Merrifield. Dozens of line installers and repair workers clad in red CWA shirts worked 6-hour shifts starting at 6 AM. I joined Democratic candidate for Delegate Jack Dobbyn (who I work as field director for) on the picket lines this morning.

    If you drive past the picket lines today, don’t forget to honk!

    More photos after the flip.
