Something to think about when choosing a wireless carrier: Verizon Wireless has been conducting union-busting activities for years now, and the only major wireless company to unionize has been Cingular, which doesn’t seem to be suffering for it because it’s the #1 carrier in the country.

According to Jeff Rechenbach, executive vice president of the Communications Workers of America, quoted in, “Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint, Alltel are the Wal-Marts of this industry.”

Verizon union busting activities have included shutting down a call center at which employees were more aggressively organizing and prohibiting workers from discussing unionization even on their own time, such as at lunch or on breaks. They have even required employees to report such activity.

American Rights at Work is sponsoring a petition, which can be found at their website or at The Petition Site.
