District 31 – District In Action

District 31 in Action! 


District 31 stands as the vibrant heart of the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA), boasting the largest active membership within the union. This expansive district serves as a powerful advocate for workers in the northern regions of West Virginia and eastern Ohio. District 31’s influence is far-reaching, covering a diverse and dynamic range of occupations, including coal miners, federal research technicians, manufacturers, and county employees.


  • On February 29, 2024, UMWA staff visited ACNR’s Marion County Mine, and Prep Plant, for a safety inspection and bathhouse visit with members of Local Union 9909. Pictured above, District 31 Representative Ryan Sparks, Dave Dayton, International Representative Tommy McGary, Harry Colisino, Quinton Willard, Kenny Willis and District 31 Representative Jason Todd.
