Down to the Wire at CenturyLink

CWA members at CenturyLink overwhelmingly authorized union leaders to call a strike if a fair contract can't be reached.

More than 88 percent of voting members authorized the strike. The contract covering about 11,000 workers at CenturyLink operations in 13 District 7 states expires Saturday, Oct. 6.

Critical issues for CWA members include the offshoring and contracting out of work, health care and retirement security.
