Tape Release Monday January 30th 2017
Last week your Union officers met at the annual CWA Telecommunications conference with National Union leaders and CWA Local officers from California, Texas, Connecticut and all states in between to discuss bargaining initiatives and other issues facing Frontier and the telecom industry. I can tell you that were not alone in the problems that we face at Frontier and throughout the industry. We met with our District Vice President Dennis Trainor to discuss concerns specific to Local 1170 and the challenges that we face. We will have further discussion at our membership meeting on February 8th.
Last week we addressed the following grievances at second step.
-Improper Disability payments

While some of our issues got resolved others are still in process.
