CWA membership approves Qwest contract

Communications Workers of America (CWA) members have voted to approve a revised four-year contract offer from Qwest Communications after the completion of the union vote was initially postponed for about a week. About 77 percent of the 20,000 CWA members affected ultimately voted to approve the new contract, which Qwest and the union revised after union membership voted down an early proposal in September. Results of the second vote were delayed becayse some union members had not received their voting materials early enough. 

As a result of the new deal, CWA members working at Qwest will receive a 12 percent pay hike over four years, but with increases in worker health plan contributions as well.
