Verizon strike on the horizon?

This article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch and this AP report say that officials of the Communications Workers are telling union members to start saving their money. The article notes that there are more than 12,000 Verizon employees in Virginia. Their collective bargaining agreement expires August 2.

Verizon is the incumbent local exchange carrier in some parts of Southwest Virginia, in the areas formerly served by C&P.
