On Thursday, members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) union in West Virginia and Ashburn, Virginia voted overwhelmingly to ratify a new union contract with Frontier Communications. 

A CWA press release stated “the four-year union contract achieves significant wage increases, preserves existing job security language, and maintains quality health and welfare benefits. In addition, Frontier has committed to creating additional jobs and a long-term work at home agreement.”

CWA and Frontier reached a tentative agreement for a four-year contract on August 26th, covering approximately 1,400 CWA-represented workers, most in West Virginia. The term of the agreement will be retroactive to Aug. 6, 2023 and will remain in effect until August 7, 2027.
