BellSouth Units, CWA Reach Settlement
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports this morning
that BellSouth and the CWA (Communication workers of America) have reach a new contract agreement. The agreement came just prior to the August 4 midnight deadline, averting a potential walkout of some 56,000 BellSouth employees. "`We are pleased to have reached a set of agreements that create real benefits for our employees, the company, the CWA and most of all, our customers,' said Dick Sibbernsen, vice president of Human Resources for BellSouth."
