AT&T said it plans to sell its wireline operations in Connecticut to Frontier Communications for $2 billion. The sale must be approved by the Federal Communications Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority and other state regulators.
The current contract covering 2,800 CWA members at AT&T East will remain in force and workers will continue to have the protections and benefits of that agreement.
CWA represents workers at Frontier Communications in West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina and other states.
