UMWA to protest in front of U.S. Capitol Building

Join us on Sept. 8 at 11 a.m. as we protest in front of the nation’s Capitol building. We must send a message to the government and pressure them to keep America’s promise to thousands of retirees, spouses, and dependents. Coal miners were promised lifetime retirement benefits by U.S. President Harry Truman in 1946. So far, they kept that promise with passage of the COAL Act. With the majority of the coal industry in bankruptcy, miners are on the edge of losing everything they have worked for.

U.S. Senators Speak Out in Support of Miners’ Protection Act

On May 25, 2016, five U.S. Senators spoke during the Senate floor proceedings about the need to pass the Miners’ Protection Act, S. 1714, to save the health care and pensions for hundreds of thousands of UMWA retirees, widows and their families.
