The long-running dispute between FairPoint Communications and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) shows no signs of letting up.  Earlier this week, FairPoint CEO Paul Sunu told Vermont Governor Peter Sumlin in a letter that the IBEW has refused to bargain in good faith.  That failure to bargain, Sunu contends, has prolonged a lengthy and unnecessary strike action that began on October 17 of this year.

The letter was made public Wednesday, wherein Sunu further states that FairPoint is seeking a resolution of the labor dispute:

“FairPoint has always been willing to compromise with the unions and from the outset of negotiations, we have bargained in good faith in an effort to reach a fair deal – any assertion to the contrary is simply untrue,” Sunu said in the letter.
