Corporate Thugs Report: Verizon
















Verizon Wireless is one of the nation’s most popular wireless providers, serving 42 million customers. But did you know the company is also one of the most anti-union?

A federal Administrative Law Judge recently found that Verizon Wireless illegally disciplined a pro-union worker and interfered with employees’ rights to form or support a union. And Verizon Wireless workers say the company used “scare tactics” and intimidation to prevent employees from joining unions.

Tell Verizon Wireless to Stop Interfering With Employees Who Want To Form Unions

How far has Verizon Wireless gone to kill any effort by its workers to have a union to improve their workplace?

* The company has prohibited workers from talking about the union on their own time.


* Verizon Wireless forced its employees to do its dirty work—a federal investigation revealed a company rule requiring employees to report all union activity at their worksite, as part of the company’s national “Emergency Procedures.”


* And in an action reminiscent of Wal-Mart’s closure of a Quebec store when its employees formed a union, Verizon Wireless shut down a call center after its employees moved closer to getting their union!

Whether you’re a customer of Verizon Wireless or not—you know this behavior is shameful and the company needs to be called out for it. Please tell the company it can do better.

If you do not like the policies of the company you work, then quit and work somewhere else or work for yourself.

No one is forced to work in such enviroments.

Take the bastards to court for violating worker's rights and the law .....
Much more effective than running with your tail between your legs...
