The Communications Workers of America (CWA) said AT&T's contract covering 22,000 workers in the Southeast region represented by CWA expired, increasing the possibility of a strike, which union members authorised by a 95 percent vote. For now, workers will return to work without a contract in place as CWA said it continues to negotiate for a deal that includes quality healthcare coverage, wage increases, job security and investment in local communities.
