The Communications Workers of America (CWA) CenturyLink negotiation team reached an early agreement with CenturyLink on a three-year contract extension for over 8,000 CWA-represented workers in 13 states. The proposed agreement provides wage increases of 3 percent in the first year, then 2.5 percent in the second and third years. It preserves job security provisions and pension benefits and reduces health care costs for workers and retirees.
