Ratification is Pending for New Frontier Contract

Frontier Communications and the Communications Workers of America have tentatively agreed on a new contract following more than a year of negotiations. The company and the union didn't provide details of the proposal, which must be ratified by union members. The Charleston Gazette says the ratification should be done by the end of August. If the proposed contract is ratified, it would cover about 1,500 Frontier workers in 42 counties who formerly were Verizon employees.
