Frontier Work AT Home Bargaining Report #16 

The company provided additional information on the payout for the Take the Lead (TTL) program.  The Union submitted additional information requests on aspects of the program that was unclear. The Union provided counter proposals to several remaining articles. Holding the company to clarifying the intent of the language is crucial at this point. We are here to get you a fair and just 1st contract.

Frontier Work AT Home Bargaining Report #14 

Your committee worked late into the night to continue to compare commission vs TTL and the company’s proposed wage schedule. We are turning it upside down and inside out to see what is the best route to approach with a counter. This is no easy task, and Shawn Mosely is a true asset in developing and creating spread sheets to decipher a voluminous amount of data. This will take a considerable amount of time to do and develop a sensible counter. We are nearing the goal line by addressing wages.

Frontier Work AT Home Bargaining Report #15 

The company provided answers to RFI the Union passed to them on 04/09/2019.  The Union and Company discussed at length the language of several articles to understand their intent.

FRONTIER WAH BARGAINING REPORT #12
 
Your Bargaining Committee delivered another complete proposal package to the company this morning. At that meeting, the company provided feedback on the requested information from the day before. The company, after the Union asked for any proposals the company would have available today, stated they would not be able to meet yesterday. Once again, the ball is in Frontier’s court and the Union is waiting on them to counter our proposals. The company will be provided dates to resume bargaining in March. We will be requesting a full week.
