lasted about two weeks. The Communication Workers of America and the International 
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers have issued a statement saying they have agreed to come 
back to work while they continue to negotiate with Verizon Communications Inc. James 
Wagner, the president of CWA Local 1122, which represents more than 500 workers in the 
Buffalo area, said the two sides are still far apart when it comes to things benefits, job 
security, and work flexibility. 
 
About 45,000 Verizon landline workers from Massachusetts to Virginia went on strike on
