MEMBERS OF LOCAL 9588
While I'm sure some of you are receiving word of the Official Bankruptcy Filing by Frontier Communications, I must emphasize to not panic.....They have filed a Chapter 11. This snippet I'm posting is from Frontiers own Communication to me.
"We expect our employees, including those represented by unions, to continue to be paid and receive their healthcare benefits as normal throughout this process. Employees should continue to come to work on the same schedule and remain focused on their job responsibilities.
Frontier’s union contracts will remain in effect as per their terms and any extension or renegotiation. We fully expect to continue to work in a mutually respectful manner with our unions as this process moves forward.
Frontier is continuing to operate as normal, and we have sufficient liquidity to run our business throughout the court-supervised process.
We remain committed to providing our customers with quality services that they expect from Frontier without interruption."
Now for those asking about Pension.
YOUR PENSION IS FINE! YOUR PENSION IS GUARANTEED!
Lump sum is NOT available while Bankruptcy proceedings are going on.....BUT will be reinstated once the Bankruptcy proceedings are completed. Remember Pensions are Protected.
Please don't let false rumors or scare tactics get to you.....If in doubt. Contact your AVPs , Stewards.

BRANDMAN UNIVERSITY - Cisco Training Program
This Fall, Brandman University, will once again be offering their extremely successful and popular Cisco CCNA Training Program to all members working for Frontier. The training program is fully covered under your union bargained tuition assistance program, with no out-of-pocket expense to you. Furthermore, this program is open to everyone who is seeking to expand their knowledge base while securing their future. To give you an idea on how successful this program has been, over the past two years more than 200 members of IBEW & CWA have taken and passed the CCNA Certification exam through Brandman University!
This four-course Cisco CCNA (Hands-on) Certification program is worth a total of 8.0 PDUs (professional development units), which may be applied towards a degree. Each course runs for three weeks (each week Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) for approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes per day. There will be a three week intermission between each of the four courses in the program. After completing all four courses, you will be prepared to take the Cisco CCNA Certification exam.
The start date for the first class is Tuesday September 7th and you will have four sessions to choose from. Session 1- 5:30AM-7:45AM (PST), Session 2- 2:30PM-4:45PM (PST), Session 3- 4:45PM-7:00PM (PST) and Session 4- 7:00PM- 9:15PM (PST). Once enrolled you are welcome to attend any of the four daily scheduled sessions. For example, if you sign up for the 4:45PM session but have a scheduled day off on Mondays, you are welcome to attend any of the four sessions on that particular day. The classes will be held LIVE ONLINE using Brandman’s Adobe Connect Pro platform, the leading virtual classroom product on the market. With Brandman’s LIVE ONLINE training format, students receive the same high-quality training as you would find in a traditional classroom setting from the comfort of your home. Also, in case you miss a session, all classes will be recorded and can be watched at your convenience.
