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.
