SBC Workers Begin Four-Day Strike

About 100,000 workers at SBC Communications, the second-largest U.S. local phone company, begin a strike Friday set to last four days. SBC is in the middle of contract negotiations with the Communications Workers of America that have stalled over wages, health care and other benefits and job security issues.
