I am pleased to announce that the members have overwhelmingly ratified the contract extensions at Verizon and Verizon Wireless. Members represented by CWA in Mid-
Atlantic and IBEW Northeast and Mid-Atlantic have also ratified their agreements. The agreements will extend the contracts through August 1, 2026.
