CWA and Frontier Communications Reach Agreement on New Contract

Charleston, W.Va. – The Communications Workers of America (CWA) in West Virginia and Ashburn, Va., have reached a tentative agreement with Frontier Communications on a new four-year contract covering approximately 1,400 CWA-represented employees. The contract achieves significant wage increases, preserves existing job security language, and maintains quality health and welfare benefits. In addition, Fronter has committed to creating additional jobs and a long-term work at home agreement

“We started this round of bargaining with one of the best contracts in the telecommunications industry,” said Mike Davis, Vice President of CWA District 2-13 which includes West Virginia and Virginia. “The Frontier bargaining team did an excellent job in the face of intense pressure from the company for concessions on post-Medicare retiree benefits. They negotiated a contract that remains the Best at Frontier and one of the best in the telecommunications industry.”

Details of the agreement are being distributed to CWA members and a contract ratification vote will be scheduled in the coming weeks.
