Topics regarding layoffs at Verizon Wireless

Put yourself first

I worked as a– for 3 years and was so stressed everyday from management I literally couldn’t eat or sleep. I made the choice to leave Verizon for another sales position. I’m making about $30k less a year but I’ve never been happier. I’m begging all... —  read more

Why Aren’t We Organizing?

Why aren’t we organizing strikes? Why aren’t we holding Verizon accountable for their worker’s rights abuses? Regardless of whether or not you’re pro- or anti-union, a strike is an effective means to express our discontent. It garners media... —  read more

Union Talk

There has been a lot of talks in the Western Mass stores about Unions again. Ridiculous quotes and sales metrics, low head counts, and micro management.

Wilmington is a ghost town

Our center hasn’t had a new hire in almost a year and the second floor is 2/3 empty. The 3rd floor is 3/4 full. Do you all think Wilmington is closing? Lease is through 2024 but it feels strange like they are keeping something a secret?

Question for fellow Call Center Reps...

Verizon customer survey

This whole survey system is a broken system... they never have your back if the customer gives you a low score even if the customer was abusive or things that were beyond your control like an outage or something. A system designed to fail you and... —  read more
