DENVER Qwest Communications International Inc. union workers in Montana have ratified a new contract.  International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 206 said Tuesday that about 81 percent of voting members ratified the contract, which is closely modeled after a four-year pact the Communications Workers of America ratified earlier this month.

Local 206 represents 157 Qwest workers in Montana.

The CWA represents about 20,000 Qwest employees in Colorado, Arizona, Iowa, Idaho, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Qwest is based in Denver.
