On April 14, 2020, Frontier Communications filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. CWA leadership and staff are currently analyzing the company's proposed plan for bankruptcy and are consulting with bankruptcy attorneys at Cohen, Weiss and Simon LLP (“CWS”).
We call on Frontier and its creditors to work quickly to put Frontier on a strong financial footing and prioritize the long-term gains that will come from investment in Frontier’s network over extracting cash from the company for short-term profit. CWA members expect to have input in the direction of the company as the bankruptcy process goes forward.
