Verizon Employees Approve New Four-Year Deal

Approximately 34,000 Verizon employees in the northeast and mid-Atlantic region, represented by the Communications Workers of America, ratified a four-year extension of their labor contract well in advance of the current contract’s August 2019 expiration date. They will see an 11.2% increase in wages over the term of the contract that also includes better retirement benefits. Verizon employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) were expected to complete ratification before the end of August.
