FairPoint workers to vote on strike

Posted: Updated:

FairPoint workers in three states including Vermont will take a strike vote next month.

Officials with the IBEW and CWA say they'll vote July 12 on whether to hit the picket lines when their contract expires in August.

The workers from Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine say they have been in contract talks with FairPoint for several weeks now and negotiations are going nowhere.

Union officials contend the company has fallen short on its promise to grow jobs and broadband service.
