Local News in Brief : Strike Vote Planned for GTE Workers

The union representing 15,000 hourly employees of GTE California said Friday it will take a strike vote against the telephone company next week. The union’s contract with GTE was to expire tonight but has been temporarily extended until Tuesday at midnight.

Communications Workers of America represents operators, customer representatives, repair people and other GTE employees.

GTE spokesman Larry Cox said a strike would cause a slowdown in repairs as well as new orders for telephone service.
