Best show of solidarity for workers outside Super Bowl LV: The IBEW Local 824 (and TBH, everyone who showed)

The IBEW Local 824 (and TBH, everyone who showed)

This year, Tampa was the home of the Super Bowl LV—Go Bucs! While thousands flocked to Raymond James Stadium for the game, Frontier Communications workers with the IBEW Local 824 union used the opportunity to boost their fight for a fair union contract with their employer. And on Super Bowl Sunday, hundreds of people showed up outside the stadium to support workers’ demands, holding signs with phrases such as Frontier Tell the Truth! and Employees Deserve Respect!. “It was just a great show of solidarity,” the union president told CL. “And it just shows you that we have each other’s back.”
