Verizon’s Crisis Management Trying to Sell Us… and then Sell Us AgainBy: pete marchese | May 10, 2016 |
There is no doubt that Verizon’s Crisis Management firm is hard at work these days.
In a series of new videos, Verizon’s Chief Administrative Officer, Marc Reed, is looking to solicit support from the public. He also strives to drive you to a master page full of Verizon’s Crisis Management multimedia which attempts to ‘holla back’ to CWA and IBEW and further draw the public to their “side.” They’ve even set up a dedicate Twitter account.
Let’s start with the master pitch. Gander at this…
In one of their several ‘Crisis Management’ videos they attempt to address compensation and benefits. This video features Compensation Director Arleen Preston who – in this bloggers opinion – does little more than speak down to the “citizen viewer” by defining compensation and benefit terms and phrases that most American worker – Union or Nonunion – would already know.
Insult meets Injury here…
Does anyone find it a coincidence that – if you were to click through to YouTube – you’ll find the note “Comments are disabled for this video.”?
Finally – and here’s the part that will put a smile on your face – Crisis Management Television Ads have now replaced the infamous “red ball” spots.
But don’t worry… CWA has creatively answered back.
Now THIS video is worth sharing…
Good for you CWA!Category:
