Political Action in Suffolk County

Support for union brothers and sisters
NYSUT received the following from Mike Gendron, Executive Vice President of CWA local 1108 in response to asking how NYSUT members can show support in the CWA fight against corporate greed and union busting by Verizon. This is his response:

Many have asked us what can be done to help us during our strike with Verizon. Stop by and say hello and let the Members know you support them. Drop off some water. Offer to walk the picket line so they can get some time with their families. Thank you so much for your out pouring of support. It means a lot to the Members of CWA 1108. Here are our main picket locations:

Verizon Garage 720 Larkfield Road  East Northport
Verizon Garage 1130 Lincoln Avenue Holbrook
Verizon Garage 285 Hubbard Avenue Riverhead
Verizon Operators office 120 Hicksville Road (picket line on Broadway) Massapequa
Verizon Wireless Store  Smith Haven Mall  Middle Country Road  Lake Grove
Verizon Wireless Store Gateway Plaza  Sunrise Hwy  Patchogue
Verizon Wireless Store  Jericho turnpike  East Northport

If this strike continues we will be providing updates as to other possible actions where we can lend support.  Thank you.
