Collective bargaining agreements expired in August for 28,000 Communications Workers (CWA) members at AT&T Southeast and 38,000 CWA and Electrical Workers (IBEW) members at Verizon in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

Workers at both companies have authorized their union leaderships to call a strike, but thus far they are staying on the job and working without a contract.
