Union leaders say Verizon employees are still on strike even after the company says it presented its best and final offer to workers on Thursday.

According to the company, it includes a 7.5 percent wage increase and protection from layoffs.

More than 30,000 employees went on strike earlier this month.

They had been working without a contract since August.
