CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Frontier Communications and the Communications Workers of America have extended their contract again while negotiations continue on a new labor agreement.
Frontier says the existing contract will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 2. The contract was set to expire Saturday night.
The company and the union have extended the contract several times since negotiations began in mid-June 2013.
Frontier East Region vice president Ken Arndt says in a news release that the two sides have made substantial progress.
The contract covers more than 1,500 workers in West Virginia.
