Along picket lines, rising acrimony
Verizon asks court to restrain striking workers

WOBURN – He was just trying to deliver their last round of paychecks when an angry group of striking Verizon workers surrounded his truck as he attempted to cross a picket line yesterday morning.
“You can deal with the name calling, you can deal with the picket lines, but it’s crazy when they’re an inch from your face screaming that they’re going to kill you and your family,’’ said the Verizon manager, who refused to provide his name in fear of retaliation.
