For the second time in the past four months, the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (NMPRC) has rejected CenturyLink’s attempts to avoid its responsibility to provide quality residential telecommunications service to all New Mexicans.
Media outlets are reporting that Frontier Communications may file for bankruptcy as early as March 2020. While we don’t know anything other than what is being reported in the news media, CWA has put together a brief question and answer piece in an attempt to explain the bankruptcy process and to ease your concerns as CWA-represented employees of Frontier.
The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission adopted strong service quality and consumer protection rules for CenturyLink. CWA members attended the hearing on the rules and CWA provided bad plant photos, playing a major role in the decision.
As most of you are aware, Frontier Communications has been experiencing financial difficulty and the company’s stock is in severe decline. There are many rumors flying around about the possibility of bankruptcy, the future of CEO Dan McCarthy and what it means for CWA members and retirees.
