CWA Delegate Election Committee for UPTE:
CWA Solidarity Actions
Last Thursday, Frontier workers in California held an informational picket to put pressure on the company to bargain a fair contract with the union. CWA represents nearly 2,000 members in California whose current contract with Frontier California expired on September 4, 2021. The contract expiration came a day after CWA members at Frontier voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike after being fed up by continued delaying tactics and retrogressive proposals from the company. The strike authorization vote gives the union the ability to strike at any moment, if needed. The picket, organized by CWA Local 9586, was part of the effort to increase pressure on management to do the right thing and prioritize workers over profit. Frontier workers across the state continue to mobilize and fight for a fair contract.
