Charleston, WVA — The contract covering 1,600 members of the Communications Workers of America at Frontier Communications in West Virginia and Ashburn, Va., has been extended for three months while negotiations continue.

The CWA elected bargaining team has been working to negotiate a fair agreement since early May; the current contract was set to expire August 5, but now has been extended until Nov. 4, 2017. Committee members are President Ken Williams, Local 2001; President Rick McKinney, Local 2007; President Shannon Fink, Local 2009, and CWA staff Linda Miller, Elaine Harris, and Letha Perry, chair of the committee.
