Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is with great pleasure that we inform the membership that we have reached a tentative agreement between Frontier and IBEW Local Union 503.
This negotiation was extremely difficult and the dedication shown by the membership was much needed and greatly appreciated.
Many days of bargaining has resulted in a Contract that your negotiation team unanimously recommends.
The Contract consists of a term of four years, with fair wages and benefits.
The details of the Contract will be relayed to the membership so all may review and process before the ratification meeting that has yet to be scheduled.
We truly thank you all for your support.
Your Bargaining Committee
Today was slow moving on the proposals. We exchanged a few proposals across the table concerning the medical plan. We also had exchanges regarding the retirement plan (401k). We know how important these two issues are to you are your families. We will contiune to discuss these until we receive what we believe is a fair package to bring back to the membership.
United We Bargain, Divided We Beg
Update for 2/6/2017 (Not posted due to technical error).
At this time contract is still set to expire Midnight, Wednesday Feb 8th. We have been focusing mostly on the medical plan at this time. The company held a call with the benefits department to clarify some issue with the plan. We will meet tomorrow for further discussions.
