Frontier Extension Bargaining Report #1

Monday - June 21, 2021

The current collective bargaining agreement between Communications Workers of America and Frontier Communications, covering employees in West Virginia and Virginia, is set to expire August 7, 2021.

Frontier approached CWA proposing the parties engage in discussions to extend the current contract rather than entering into full-scale bargaining. The Union Bargaining Committee, with input from Local Presidents, agreed to enter into limited negotiations aimed at an extension.

The Company has provided the Union its outline of possible terms of an extension. The Bargaining Committee is reviewing and will respond to the Company next week. An agreement, if reached, will be subject to ratification by the members in the bargaining unit.

The next Bargaining Report will be provided on Friday, July 2, 2021 (unless discussions merit sooner).

CWA members at Frontier in WV and VA ratify contract

Thursday - April 19, 2018

On behalf of the Bargaining Committee, we are pleased to report that CWA members at Frontier Communications in West Virginia and Ashburn, Va. have voted to ratify the 4-year agreement that the bargaining team reached last month.

Our members fought hard for this agreement. We negotiated for over 11 months, then spent 22 days on strike. Thanks to our unity and perseverance and the unwavering support of working people in West Virginia, Virginia, and across the country, we won an agreement that raises wages, maintains affordable health care and expands job security to all of our members.

This is a major achievement, and it shows what working people can do when they join together to stand up for themselves and their communities.

THE STRIKE IS OVER

Monday - March 26, 2018

The main objective of Job Security for every member in the bargaining unit has been achieved!  We have a fair contract for everyone.

The picket lines are to be taken down.

Detailed information regarding the contract specifics will be provided later today.

Employees whose tours begin 6 p.m. Tuesday night, March 27, 2018, and extend into Wednesday, March 28, 2018 will report to work for those tours.  All other employees will return to work for their tours that are scheduled to begin on Wednesday, March 28, 2018.  In unusual circumstances, the Company will excuse employees, without pay, from reporting for a reasonable period not to exceed 72 hours from 5 p.m. March 27, 2018.  Returning employees will return to work on the same tours to which they were assigned immediately prior to March 3, 2018.

This victory is a result of the solidarity and commitment each and every member showed during this strike.  On behalf of your bargaining committee, we want to congratulate and thank you for standing up and fighting back to achieve this contract.

WHEN WE FIGHT, WE WIN!

STRIKE REPORT #8

Saturday - March 24, 2018

No formal meetings were held today.  Our major issues remain unresolved.  The Union Bargaining Committee was available and prepared to meet all day and remains so at the time of this report.  The frustration that every member is feeling is equally shared by the Union Bargaining Committee.

The Rally was great with hundreds of CWA Members, our Union Allies, and several pro-worker elected leaders in attendance.  The crowd, energized by the dynamic speakers, let everyone at 1500 MacCorkle Avenue know we are resolute and steadfast in getting a good contract.  Thank you to everyone who attended all the CWA members, and our supporters who helped make the Rally a huge success.

Throughout the state, CWA members who didn’t attend the Rally worked on the business at hand doing strike duty and making the flying squadrons effective. Everyone is doing great.  Our persistence is impacting Frontier and keeping the SCABS running around doing little to no work.

STAY STRONG!  WHEN WE FIGHT, WE WIN!
