BLUEFIELD, W.Va.  — Day three of a strike continued Tuesday for workers with Frontier Communications, who have set up picket line locations in several spots across the region.

Louis Nave from Princeton said he is on strike from Frontier for several reasons.

 “Our contract expired Saturday with Frontier,” Nave said. “We’re picketing, all 1,400 of us across the state. We’re wanting a new fair contract. It’s about job security, that’s number one. The number one priority at this point is that nobody loses their job. They’re wanting to cut at least 30 people out of Bluefield alone in the assignment center. There’s more across the state that could be affected by this.”
