Everett, Mass. -- Today, retail store workers at a Verizon Wireless store in Everett, Mass., voted for bargaining rights and representation by the Communications Workers of America.

The vote is a huge victory for these workers who stayed strong despite an aggressive and intimidating management campaign to dissuade them.

It follows the vote last May by nearly 70 Verizon Wireless store workers at six Brooklyn stores who also made a successful stand for bargaining rights to address their issues on the job.

“There’s a real movement of Verizon Wireless workers that we knew we wanted to be a part of, to stand up with our colleagues for fairness and our rights on the job,” said Mike Tisei, a retail worker at the Everett store. “Today, we joined that movement.”
