Effects Bargaining Report COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate-Frontier

Tuesday - December 21, 2021

In late October, Frontier notified CWA that they determined it was necessary to apply its Covid19 vaccine mandate to all of its employees, including the unionized workforce, to assure they would be in full compliance with the federal mandate applicable to federal contractors. CWA requested to bargain over the effects that a mandate may have on our members. Negotiations began on November 3, 2021.

The parties had several bargaining meetings and continued to exchange proposals over the terms of the proposed policy, its implementation and its effect on our members. On December 7, 2021 Frontier indicated that they were on the verge of making a last best final offer to the union and intended to implement it. Subsequently, a federal judge in the Southern District of Georgia issued an Order imposing a nationwide stay the federal contractor vaccine mandate the same day.

This stay does not prevent employers from having their own vaccination policy. After taking several days to consider how they would proceed, Frontier gave CWA a revised proposal which reflects recent legal developments concerning the federal contractor vaccine mandate. The revised proposal designates the date of implementation as “to be determined” for any unpaid leaves and termination of employees who are not vaccinated or who have not requested a legally recognized accommodation.

This means that Sections 4 and 6 of the Company’s proposal are “on hold” pending further discussions between the parties. Once the Company notifies the Union of a proposed start date for Section 4, further negotiations would resume. CWA has not agreed to Frontiers proposal. However, Frontier notified CWA today that they intend to implement their revised proposal and abide by all Sections, other than Sections 4 and 6, noting that Section 11 is contingent on implementation of those Sections.

The Company plans to notify its CWA-represented employees on or before December 14, 2021 that all employees are required to complete the vaccination survey and if applicable, submit requests for an accommodation required by law by January 4, 2022.

CWA and Frontier Communications have agreed in principle to a two-year extension of the collective bargaining agreement covering employees in West Virginia and Virginia. The current agreement is set to expire August 7, 2021.
Details of the agreement will be provided for membership review. The agreement is subject to ratification by the members of the bargaining unit.

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.


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.
