How comfortable are you with corporate greed? Comfortable enough to sit back as Verizon triples CEO Lowell McAdam's salary on the backs of American workers?

This CEO salary hike comes at a time when Verizon is outsourcing U.S. jobs, gutting worker pensions, charging current and retired employees thousands of dollars more for health benefits, and cutting disability coverage.

I can't stomach that level of unfairness, and I'll bet Lowell McAdam's $23.1 million salary you can't either.

Tell Verizon what you think. Call 800-229-9460 to record a message that will be delivered directly to Verizon executives.

Today [5/3/2012] hundreds of activists are gathered in Huntsville, Alabama at the site of Verizon's annual shareholders meeting. There, union members, people of faith, environmentalists, students and civil rights activists will mobilize to take our message directly to CEO McAdam and all of Verizon's shareholders, where their voices can't be ignored.

Corporate greed on this scale is bad enough, but when combined with the systematic destruction of middle-class jobs it's completely unacceptable. Together we can put an end to these terrible corporate practices, but only if you speak up and make your voice heard.

Call now and tell Verizon to treat workers and customers with respect -- by negotiating a fair contract.

In Unity,

Beth Allen
Online Communications Director, Communications Workers of America
