    Workers’ contracts expired three weeks ago and employees are pushing for a strike if both sides can't reach a deal.

    “They don't have any problem putting their name on football stadiums and golf tournaments, but when it comes to taking care of the people who built the company, there seems to be an issue,” Union president Bonnie Overman said.
     
    AT&T has already agreed to a 200 percent increase in health care, but employees say they're overworked.

    They plan to hold more rallies throughout Charlotte.
