The Communications Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers issued the following statement:
We have reached agreement with Verizon on how bargaining will proceed and how it will be restructured. The major issues remain to be discussed, but overall, issues now are focused and narrowed.
We appreciate the unity of our members and the support of so many in the greater community. Now we will focus on bargaining fairly and moving forward.
Details are not yet available on what concessions were agreed upon to end the strike that sent 45,000 workers off the job in the wire line division of Verizon.
