The Nation : Strike at Western Union

July 28, 1985

The United Telegraph Workers union, representing 6,500 technicians, operators and clerks, called a strike against Western Union Corp. when talks on a new three-year contract broke down in Hollywood, Fla., over pay and job security disputes. The company, which lost $58.4 million last year, was negotiating past deadline with the 600-member Communications Workers of America union in Westbury, N.Y. Labor officials said the strike will affect all company services, including public messages and money orders, but the firm said it will continue its operations.
