Welcome to CWA Local 2001, serving
approximately 1000 members at Frontier Communications,
AT&T Wireless, Avaya, AFT Staff, and WV ABCA

Our contract books have arrived and we will start distributing them this week. Tomorrow we will be in the cafeteria at 1500 MacCorkle Avenue and Rock Branch, Poca, passing books out. Due to the number of books that we received, you will have to sign for your book in order for us to ensure that everyone gets a copy. The contract is also available on our web page, CWA2001.org
BARGAINING REPORT #2
Meetings were held between the Union and the Company on August 20-21, 2015. The Union again addressed our number 1 Proposal of having “all” CWA members in West Virginia under one contract. The Union also raised concerns over the amount of contracting work that is being performed in the “Original” Frontier exchanges. We presented the Company with several comprehensive data requests that will be thoroughly reviewed. The Proposals that the Bargaining Committee has submitted to the Company all coincide with our number 1 Proposal of “all” one Bargaining Unit.
The Company presented the Union with its initial Healthcare Proposal that the Bargaining Committee found to be unacceptable. We will continue to work on this issue.
High level meetings are scheduled between the Union and the Company, and the atmosphere is still good at the table.
Please do what you can to help with this fight.
President, Ken “Mister” Williams

Horgan was taken away from his family
and friends 20 years ago on Aug 15,
1989. He succumbed to the injuries he
sustained after being run down by a scab
while walking the picket line fighting
for medical benefits from a Greedy NYNEX
Corporation. We wear Red in solidarity
and to always remember our fallen
brother. Today many Members only know
Gerry as an event that happen during the
4 month long strike for medical
benefits. Gerry was much more, he was a
husband, a father, a son and a dear
friend who has been missed these past 20
We invite all CWA
Members to take a moment and watch &
listen to Gerry’s family and friends and
celebrate the man who stood up and stood
out and paid the ultimate price. Click

The triangle symbolizes the
three major programs of the union:
representation, organizing and community/political action.
None can stand alone.
If the triangle is broken on any side, sooner or later it
will be broken on every side.
