CWA District 2-13 represents Verizon employees in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, DC. The Mid-Atlantic contracts covering Verizon employees in these states expired on August 1, 2015. Nearly 40,000 Verizon workers went on strike on April 13, 2016 after months of bargaining with the company. After 45 days of the largest strike in recent history, striking CWA members achieved our major goals. A tentative agreement was reached through the assistance of the Department of Labor on Friday, May 27, 2016. The tentative agreement was overwhelmingly ratified by the membership on June 17, 2016. When we fight, we win!
