CWA Members at CenturyLink Seek Fair Contract

More than 13,000 workers represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) in 13 Western and Midwestern states are fighting for a fair contract at CenturyLink. Their contract was set to expire at midnight on Oct. 6, but workers stayed on the job under a temporary extension while they try to win a fair contract.

The workers—customer service agents, network technicians, Internet support workers and others—voted earlier by 88% to authorize a strike if a fair contract cannot be reached. The union says critical issues include the offshoring and contracting out of work, health care and retirement security.
