Short Take: Union opposes Qwest-US West merger

The Communications Workers of America labor union threw its weight behind the Global Crossing-US West merger, saying that deal would be better for its members than the hostile Qwest bid launched Sunday. Qwest's proposal would lead to job loss, the CWA predicted, calling the company's efforts a throwback to an "old-style slash-and-burn merger strategy."
