PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A judge has established rules for picketing by striking Verizon workers in Pennsylvania.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/1VsNyI3 ) reports an injunction signed Thursday in Philadelphia common pleas court says only six spaced strikers at a time can picket outside Verizon offices, and they can’t block company managers.

Verizon spokesman Richard Young says the strikers had been standing arm-in-arm. Union official Edward Mooney says the injunction amounts to “agreement on how we will conduct the picketing for the length of the strike.”

About 39,000 cable and landline employees in nine states and Washington, D.C., walked off the job on Wednesday.
