It’s been 10 days since Frontier workers haven been on the job. Monday, March 12 they were back on the picket lines braving the cold weather.

CWA Vice President of local 2007 group, Kevin Douthat, told our sister station, 59 News, there have been no negotiations.

Workers are still looking for 100 percent job sustainability, and to keep jobs in West Virginia.

Frontier workers said they are determined to get their message across, and will stay on the picket lines through the frigid temperatures and snow.

“The weather is not gonna drive us out because we are used to the weather anyway. We are always in the rain, always in the snow. This is just another day to us,” said Douthat.

Picketers added the people the company have brought in to work, while local workers remain on the picket lines, have not t been doing the best at getting the job done. They said that’s just another reason they want to be back to work, providing the best service for customers.
