Qwest Jobs

Denver-based Qwest Communications International has agreed to shift about one-thousand nonunion jobs to positions that will be covered by the Communications Workers of America.

Qwest spokesman Robert Toevs (tayvz) says the company has complied with a recent C-W-A request to become the workers' exclusive bargaining agent.

Most of the affected employees work in voice and data network operations for Qwest's nationwide fiber-optic network.

Toevs says union switch will result in a "benefit and salary implication handled on a case-by-case basis."

CWA District 7 vice president John Thompson says it's too early to estimate exactly how employee wages will be affected
