Stop & Shop Workers On Strike

Members of The United Food & Commercial Workers Union, representing approximately 31,000 Stop & Shop workers in MA, CT & RI walked off the job today after failing to reach a new contract.


UFCW was a huge supporter of us during our strikes with Verizon. Please join a line, donate food and drinks, and let them know we stand in solidarity with them!

MA Unemployment Decision

Brothers and Sisters,

After a long, uphill battle, IBEW and CWA have just been notified of the MA Unemployment decision by the Boston Municipal Court. Unfortunately, because our strike was so effective, our unemployment appeal has been denied.

In Solidarity,

Myles Calvey, IBEW, T-6 Chairman
Don Trementozzi, President, CWA Local 1400

More fios Work Is A Win-Win

Verizon wants to bring fios to as many buildings as possible in Boston, and so does IBEW 2222. If you are working in an apartment building, condo complex or facility that does not yet have fios, please share this information so that the building manager or developer can be contacted.

Contact Verizon Enhanced Communities via email at BostonMDU@verizon.com and include your name and contact information and the property contact name (if you have it), address, and phone number.

With your assistance, we can bring Verizon fios to many more consumers, and keep our members working at the same time. Thank you!
