TULSA, OK -- Local AT&T workers are protesting what they call corporate greed.
Union members gathered outside the downtown Tulsa office building, carrying signs and chanting.
The union and AT&T are negotiating a new contract. Their old one expired last weekend.
Workers are upset, saying AT&T wants to cut jobs and increase healthcare costs.
"They made over $12.9 billion in profits last year," Tulsa CWA spokesman Dave Ratcliff said. "So, as long as they are making a substantial profits, there's no reason that the employees should not have a fair contract."
The workers have approved a strike, but are hoping it doesn't come to that.
