Verizon's New CEO, Janus on Monday and UCOMM's Instagram
Verizon has announced that their CEO Lowell McAdams will be stepping down on August 1. McAdams had been the CEO of the telecom giant since 2011. During his tenure, he refused to negotiate a fair contract with the Communications Workers of America in 2015-16 leading to a 7-week strike. McAdams will be succeeded by the company’s current Executive Vice President Hans Vestberg.
Could Janus be decided on Monday? Here at UCOMM, we are on Janus watch. The Supreme Court has been releasing decisions over the last few weeks. With just 3 weeks left in the term, Janus stands as one of the most important cases that have not yet been decided. Many legal experts expect the court to decide in favor of the plaintiff, Mark Janus. For more information on the case, click here.
