Description

U.S. Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and leaders of the IBEW and CWA (Mike Spillane, business manager, IBEW Local 2326, Don Trementozzi, president, CWA Local 1400, Mike O’Day, vice president, CWA District 6) hold a press conference on the FairPoint Communications strike. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Communication Workers of America have called on Wall Street hedge fund managers, who hold major shares in the company, to force FairPoint to return to the bargaining table with the unions that represent some 1,700 workers in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The strike began October 17th after the North Carolina-based company slashed health benefits and froze workers’ pensions.
