Verizon employees end strike, but don't have a deal yet5
The strange thing is that the unions and Verizon do not yet have a new contract signed. A statement from Communications Workers of America, one of the unions involved, says that there is an agreement on how the sides will proceed with negotiations. CWA also says that major issues remain, but the issues have become more "focused and narrowed".
So, Verizon employees are back to work, and, according to Verizon, they will work under the same terms of the contract that expired on August 6th until a new deal is signed.
