Patch Question: How Does the Verizon Strike Affect You?

Verizon representative doesn't expect any interruption of service.

Verizon workers went on strike Sunday after ongoing labor negotiations failed.

Despite the sudden loss of its existing workforce, Verizon's media relations director, John Bonomo, said the company doesn't expect any disruption in its field and telephone-based customer service departments.

Workers were seen striking outside of the St. James and Commack transportation hubs.

My dad is a Verizon employee that was sent to work up north during the strike. Hearing his accounts from the past couple of days is scary. I read in an article earlier that some Verizon workers had hit a striker with their car, but I have a strong suspicion that this happened because that person along with others surrounded their car (I know my dad's car was has been surrounded). I understand that these people want changes but they need to have respect for the people sent to replace them because they are working for a living just like everyone else.
