National Jobs with Justice has told our North Texas group the decisions made on an August 11 conference call. I have asked our steering committee, Communications Workers of America local 6171, and other labor leaders for input.
National JwJ sent us a flyer for customers and passers-by while picketing and picketing instructions for everyone setting these up. Two helpful videos about this struggle:
The priorities of all coalitions throughout the JwJ Network in supporting this strike are:
STREET, CITY, ZIP CODE OF THE STORE
YOUR NAME & ORGANIZATION
If you have a website or facebook page where picket dates & times will be posted, please provide a link.
You can find a store here http://cwa-union.org/pages/verizon_picket_lines or here http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/storelocator/index.jsp. Please make sure to choose a Verizon Wireless store, not a reseller, and please let firstname.lastname@example.org know which stores you are adopting rather than using the online form on the CWA website.
The priority for top and middle tier coalitions who have prioritized this struggle, we affirmed that the priority is:
1) Prioritize and develop schedule for picketing at Verizon Wireless (VZW) stores and communicating those to us.
2) Develop a short plan (can be simpler than Boston’s plan, attached).
3) Every Friday send a brief progress report so we can keep CWA up to speed on our work. Please email to Russ (email@example.com), and cc Treston (Treston@jwj.org).
4) Any other actions, ideas initiatives are great but stores are priority. This is primary picketing, not leafleting although that is part of it.
