Verizon Communications and union leaders on Saturday said that striking employees in the area will return to work on Tuesday, though there is no deal on a new contract.
The Communications Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers said they've agreed to stop the two-week strike because the provider of phone, cable and Internet services started to bargain in good faith.
Union employees will work under the terms of the contract that expired on Aug. 6, the day before Verizon workers walked out. There is no deadline to reach a new deal, Verizon added in a statement.
Since then, there have been protests throughout Long Island.
Verizon also said it planned to "quickly address any backlog in repairs and unfulfilled requests for service."
