Frontier Communications Employees in New York Ratify Labor Contract

Employees of Frontier Communications in Monroe, New York recently ratified a customer service-focused labor agreement with the company. The employees ratified the agreement on March 27, 2014. The company and union bargaining committees worked together to address issues that were priorities for both parties: the intense competition in the telecommunications industry, the challenging economic times, the importance of hiring and retaining the best employees and providing competitive wages and benefits. IBEW Local 503 represents 42 sales and service technicians, building technicians and network engineering technicians who serve Frontier customers throughout the greater Monroe area. The ratified contract expires on January 31, 2017 and will help Frontier remain competitive and enhance customer service while continuing to provide solid wages and benefits to its Southern Hudson Valley based union employees. Both Frontier and Local 503 leadership collaborated on many operational and economic issues, noted Bogdanski, but the most important common goal for everyone was putting the customer first. Citing a true team effort between Local 503 and Frontier, Bogdanski said that both sides provided some give and take and stayed focused on customer impact, first and foremost.
