Last Updated: 132 days ago
DENVER - CenturyLink and its largest union have announced a deal that could avoid a strike of 11,000 workers.
The agreement reached late Tuesday covers employees in 13 mostly western states. A strike could have disrupted phone and Internet service for millions of consumers.
According to the Denver Post, the proposed agreement offers lump-sum increases and wage increases. It also provides new limitations on CenturyLink's ability to transfer jobs to offshore call centers.
