Verizon Communications Inc.  took part in the JPMorgan Technology, Media and Telecom Conference that was held last month. The Verizon Chairman and CEO Lowell McAdam agreed with what the firm’s CFO said earlier about the impact of the strike (which has now been settled). Like the annual meeting of shareholders, this event too carried on while union members were protesting outside the venue. The CEO also endorsed the executive VP Fran Shammo’s statement made earlier that the shadow workers were more focused toward the repair of pre-installed devices. They were not able to keep up with setting up new devices.
