Breaking News: Update on Frontier Communications Declares Bankruptcy, November 23, 2020
Updated On: Nov 18, 2021

CWA Calls on Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) to Impose Conditions on Frontier Bankruptcy

Monday, November 23, 2020

As the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) considers Frontier Communications of Connecticut (SNET)’s proposed bankruptcy reorganization plan, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) submitted an opening brief today asking the Authority to impose conditions to make sure the bankruptcy plan enables SNET to improve service quality for consumers and preserve good jobs in Connecticut.

CWA is the labor union that represents more than 1,600 Frontier employees working as technicians and call center representatives in Connecticut. CWA technicians have watched in frustration as Frontier has failed to invest in its network and workforce in recent years, leading to the declining condition of Frontier’s Connecticut plant. Significant cuts in staffing have meant fewer technicians in the field to provide critical maintenance and respond to customer issues.

In April of 2016, CWA represented 2,397 employees in Connecticut. Over the last four years, the company has cut 740 positions, a full 30% of the unit. This failed strategy has taken a toll on the quality of service Frontier is able to offer Connecticut customers and contributed to the bankruptcy reorganization that is now before PURA.

“The CWA members who work at Frontier know firsthand what the company needs to do to come out of this bankruptcy process stronger and ready to provide quality service to its customers,” said CWA Local 1298 President Dave Weidlich. “That’s why we want to make sure that PURA uses its oversight process to hold Frontier accountable to its consumers and workers — not Wall Street hedge funds like Elliott Management that only care about making a quick buck.”
