LOWER PAXTON TOWNSHIP, Dauphin County, Pa. -- AT&T union workers agreed to an extension of their contract tonight, after more than 20,000 company employees protested nationwide for a new one.
The contract, which was set expire at 11:59 p.m. tonight, brought over a dozen union workers to rally outside an AT&T store in Lower Paxton Township along Jonestown Road.
"We basically want job security, better wages, and we want our members to know they have a future here at the company," said Tom Ballek, Executive Vice President of CWA Central Division.
AT&T and members of the Communication Workers of America union have not reached a settlement. The company says employees will work under the terms of the extended contract and negotiations continue.
