DENVER - Members of the largest union representing CenturyLink workers rejected a tentative contract deal reached in July, but officials said no strike is imminent.
The Communications Workers of America District 7, which represents Qwest employees who are now employed by CenturyLink, voted 54 per cent to 46 per cent on Sunday to turn down the deal.
The union covers 11,000 workers in 13 states, including about 2,000 in Colorado. CenturyLink acquired Denver-based Qwest in 2011.
