WORKERS STRIKE TWO 'BABY BELLS'

Unions representing 60,000 workers at NYNEX Corp. and 42,500 at Pacific Telesis struck the regional telephone companies on Sunday. NYNEX serves most of the Northeast; Pacific Telesis parts of California and all of Nevada. The strikes likely will cause delays in repairs, installations, and directory assistance.

The strike against NYNEX was announced in New York by CWA Vice President Jan Pierce, who said the unions and the company were far apart on wages and even further apart on the contentious issue of health insurance. Other issues also were unresolved.
