Verizon lays off thousands

According to an email from the Communications Workers of America, Verizon has laid off thousands of their employees drawing the ire of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo’s office said the closing of two call centers in New York as part of a nationwide consolidation plan is “an egregious example of corporate abuse – among the worst we have witnessed.”

Shelton said Verizon was exhibiting “corporate greed at its worst” by closing call centers and laying off 3,200 retail store workers. He pledged that CWA will keep up the fight against “very greedy” Verizon and will continue to work with Verizon Wireless workers for the union voice they want and so clearly need.
