Verizon strikers accused of harassing replacement workers

So how is Verizon's (NYSE: VZ) month-old strike going? Judging by complaints made by replacement workers to the National Labor Relations Board, not that much better than when it started. 

As FierceTelecom reports, striking Verizon workers represented by the CWA and IBEW have been accused by the NLRB of harassing replacement workers at hotels in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.

The NLRB sought a court order to prevent striking Verizon union workers from picketing and using alleged strong-arm tactics at area hotels housing Verizon employees and subcontractors.

Citing NLRB court documents filed yesterday in U.S. District Court in Boston, the Boston Herald reported that members of the local Communications Workers of America and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers chapters have been engaged in what the NLRB calls "highly disruptive" picketing.
