(SEATTLE) –Ahead of Verizon’s annual shareholder meeting Thursday, leading groups in the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements are calling on Verizon CEO Lowell C. McAdam and the company’s board of directors to meet with them and discuss next steps to end pervasive sexual harassment and misconduct in Verizon-contracted warehouses. The letter comes as female workers employed at the Verizon-contracted XPO Logistics warehouse in Memphis recently filed a wave of complaints with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). After receiving the group’s letter, Verizon stated on Wednesday that it will investigate the complaints.

XPO workers and union activists from Belgium, France, Spain, the UK and USA will hold a press conference in Paris to reveal further evidence of worker abuse at the company.
