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.

“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.
