Verizon takes legal action against striking workers
Verizon has taken legal action against the striking landline workers, accusing them of harassment and sabotage.
Verizon claims the workers have deliberately cut fiber optic and phone lines in Pomona and Harriman State Park, as well as harassing and blocking access to other workers at various facilities.
The landline workers have been on strike since Sunday, claiming a lack of bargaining rights and a need for a fair contract.
Verizon officials say that they are willing to negotiate, but so far the two sides have failed to reach an agreement.
