Way to motivate the techs, work an extra 2.5 hours a week! Forced 1 hour lunch. Thanks Greg Stephens, can’t wait on the blast email saying we should be thankful for the extra unpaid hours we get to be at work instead of being with our family.

I know a lot of people dread this situation, but I truly wish I was among those offered buyouts. I've been planning on leaving Frontier anyhow, so I'd jump at the opportunity. Might even save somebody's job like that. Anybody knows if there will be... read more
Director in WV gone no longer taking calls and last day is jan 5th
CT employees received their 2nd SVSP (isp) offer too, to be off payroll by 12/30. Outside techs look like the targets once again. Heard they have a "no layoff clause" like WV. Is "redeployment" coming, or any other news?
Are they in the pocket of the company? Can't they be front and center telling us what is going on before we hear it over the fence? How about getting us some options such as adding a few years of service. After all its not gonna come out of the... read more

Not sure about this new 1st level in WV.....From CA doesnt seem to have a clue.
Things are just getting weirder and weirder.
Heard something like 5% were cut, IT was impacted. Based on some of those that were selected for the RIF, and those who were not tapped, it is clear that those in power are more interested in politics and control than doing right by customers and... read more
Came across this link. Throwing out a question to anyone with a heads up on Allen being on the chopping block??? Atmosphere here is strange.
