The Backdrop of WV Bargaining
With contract negotiations between Frontier and CWA WV well underway, and expiration approaching, Frontier management will be posting relevant updates and information on negotiations and our company.
Frontier Communications is committed to building a company that will be successful far into the future. Its path to reach that goal is straightforward. The Company must:
Broadband is a highly competitive industry in which competing companies make strategic investments in infrastructure and then work to gain market share by delivering quality services at competitive prices. This new business model requires us to develop and sustain a competitive and winning culture across all aspects of our business. Our labor agreements reflect part of that culture.
We know our competition and recognize that flexibility and the ability to quickly adapt to market changes are essential to win and keep customers. Many of our competitors are not subject to the regulations we are – they like the advantage of operating on this “uneven” playing field. We must always be mindful of our expenses, service quality and the value of our products.
We seek a fair and competitive contract that is compatible with all of these competing needs.
Reaching such a contract inevitably means seeking incremental changes that will position Frontier and its WV CWA- represented employees for future sustainable success.
Frontier Communications’ commitment to West Virginia and its citizens is demonstrated by its investment of $300 million during the past three years to deliver unprecedented improvements and advancements to West Virginia's communications infrastructure.
