Cabell Huntington Hospital Workers Strike

Monday - November 08, 2021

huntingon strikeUnion Workers in the service and maintenance units (SEIU) District 1199  at Cabell Huntington Hospital went on strike at 12 noon, Wednesday, November 3, 2021 after failing to reach agreement on a contract.  This is the first time in 23 years Union workers have been on strike.

After months of negotiations with CHH, who have made it clear they value profits over workers the Members walked out on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at noon.  Members from CWA Local 2001 were there to stand in Solidarity and support for the Union Members.

Members are striking due to the Company wanting to take away Retiree Insurance, they want to limit union time and bring in subcontractors, as well as freezing the pay of Union members. Through the 3rd quarter of this year St. Marys and CHH have enjoyed a $64M profit.

The last report we have is the sides are meeting today, November 8, 2021.

Elaine Harris awarded prestigious UMWA award

Friday - September 10, 2021

elaineLOCAL 2001 wants to CONGRATULATE ELAINE!

Elaine Harris, CWA International Staff Representative for CWA District 2-13 and Local 2001 Staff Representative, was recently awarded the Mother Jones/Ma Blizzard award. The award was presented to her by Cecil Roberts, President of UMWA for her many years of dedicated service to protect and promote Union rights for all. In addition to representing CWA you can find her standing with UMWA and other unions throughout the state when called upon. Elaine is always fighting for the everyday working person.

The prestigious award is named for two UMWA activists from the early 1900s. Mary (Mother) Jones was once called “the most dangerous woman in America” due to her success in organizing mine workers and their families against mine owners. She was instrumental in WV UMWA as well as other unions and issues. In 1903 she organized a children’s march from Philadelphia to the home of President Teddy Roosevelt in New York. The march was protesting the lax enforcement of child labor laws in Pennsylvania mines and silk mills. Sarah (Ma) Blizzard, her husband and children were actively involved with the UMWA in its earliest days. After supporting a 1902 strike that led to being evicted from their home, the family moved to Cabin Creek in Kanawha County. During the violent Paint Creek-Cabin Creek strike of 1912 Ma allowed striking miners to camp on her land. She then joined forces with labor leader Mother Jones. Both ladies were instrumental in organizing and marching with UMWA members.

Ma Jones is the mother of (former) UWMA District 17 President Bill Blizzard and the great grandmother of UMWA President Cecil Roberts.

Good News about the Vision Care Plan!

Davis Vision, administrator of the Vision Care Plan for the CWA WV VA (142) bargaining unit, has made a provider network modification that increases the number of in-network providers nationwide.  The upgrade to the network is in place now.

To find a provider, Plan members can use the Davis Vision Provider Locator tool via the Davis Vision website—either by logging into their private account, or by using the Frontier client code “4849”.


  1. Go to www.davisvisioncom/members
  2. Click on “Member Log In”
  3. Log In: Member can input their username and password if they’ve already set up an account, or can Register New Account if they have not previously done so.
  4. Search anonymously by Client Code: Input 4849 in the “Client Code” space which will provide an anonymous log in for the Frontier Plan and Network.
  5. Lastly, click on “Find a Provider” and input zip code & radius(miles) for search

To use the provider network, Plan members should simply call the provider to make an appointment and provide their Davis Vision ID#.  The provider will verify their eligibility directly with Davis Vision.
