Activists and union leaders hope people will say iWon’t when it comes time to upgrade to Apple’s next iPhone on Verizon Wireless.
Verizon Communication and the unions representing 45,000 workers, including 7,000 in New Jersey, remain in a dispute while negotiations continue on a new contract. The Communication Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electric Workers went out on strike for two weeks in August before agreeing to return to work following new efforts in talks.
Union members and members of activist groups will hand out leaflets at Verizon Wireless stores timed around the launch of Apple’s iPhone 5, which is expected Tuesday.
