BellSouth and CWA Reach Settlement

BellSouth and the Communications Workers of America (CWA) have reached a five-year tentative agreement covering approximately 500 employees of BellSouth Internet Services. The previous contract was set to expire at midnight on Aug. 6, 2005.

"We are pleased that once again the company and CWA have been able to work together successfully to find solutions to the complex issues facing our business," said Dick Sibbernsen, vice president of Human Resources for BellSouth. "This agreement allows BellSouth to effectively compete in the marketplace and continue to provide customers with high-quality products and services."
