Join Us for a Candlelight Vigil at Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam's Home Thursday, 8/18, 7 p.m.
Join striking Verizon workers for a candlelight vigil at the home of Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam's Home on Thursday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m. We will be mourning the death of good, middle class jobs in New Jersey at the hands of Verizon corporate greed. Verizon made $22.5 billion in profits over the past four and a half years and has paid its top five CEOs $258 million in the past four years, but despite these times of lavish profit, the company wants $1 billion in concessions from its 45,000 unionized workers and wants to eliminate contract provisions protecting workers from outsourcing.
The vigil will be from 7:00 p.m. -- 8:30 p.m. in Mendham, NJ. There will be buses leaving from:
- Newark: 30 Clinton St, 5:30 p.m.
- Livingston: 280 W Mt. Pleasant Ave, 6:00 p.m.
- Hamilton: Hamilton Marketplace in front of BJ's, 900 Marketplace Blvd, 5:00 p.m.
Please call your local or the CWA District 1 office at 609-278-6588 to reserve a seat on a bus.
There will also be a shuttle service to and from the event, running between 6:15 and 7:00 p.m. To utilize this service, please meet in the parking lot of Kings Supermarket, located at 86 East Main Street in Mendham.
