Verizon threatens to stop paying worker healthcare benefits - The Hill's Hillicon Valley
Verizon said it plans to stop paying for striking workers' healthcare coverage if they fail to return to work at the end of the month as the work stoppage entered day 11 on Wednesday.
"If our striking employees aren't serving our customers, our customers shouldn't be expected to pay their benefits," Verizon spokesman Ed McFadden told The Hill. "That's basically our philosophy on why we sent the letters out. It's our customers who pay their benefits."
