Verizon Strikers to Hold March, Rally in Boston

Hundreds of Verizon workers on Thursday will hold a march and a rally in Boston.

They will be joined by elected leaders and community supporters to protest the company's failure to settle a contract that saves middle class jobs for nearly 40,000 employees.

Verizon executives have been pushing to offshore jobs in the Philippines, Mexico and other locations to outsource work to low-wage contractors.

This will take place at 5 p.m. in Copley Square followed by a march to the Verizon Destination Store at 745 Boylston St.

Verizon workers, represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), have been working without a contract since Aug. 1, 2015.
