A message from President Dave Weidlich
In the summer of 2019, Frontier Communications noticed CWA that they needed new I-9 forms from employees. The Union had many questions related to this issue, mostly, what the need was for employees to do this when they already had I9’s on file.
The information requested by the Union was not provided by Frontier. Subsequently, we filed a labor board charge with the National Labor Relations Board. After many years of being tied up in court, we finally got a decision and this posting as a result of that decision. Once the information is provided to the Union, we will review it and determine if there is any need to further bargain over this issue. Frontier was sending this posting out to all CWA Local 1298 members via company email yesterday.
