United Mine Workers of America members have been on the front lines of social, economic and workplace justice for 118 years. Get overtime after working a 40-hour week? Thank the UMWA. Got a pension? Thank the UMWA. Health care benefits? Thank the UMWA.

Unfortunately, more and more workers in North America don't have those benefits any longer. We must all fight together to restore dignity and justice in the workplace and financial security at home for all working and retired persons. Once again, the UMWA is taking a leadership role in that fight.

You can join us--even if you're not represented by the UMWA--by becoming an Associate UMWA Member. For just $5 a month, you'll sign on to becoming part of a growing movement to restore justice and dignity for working families. Plus, you'll get access to benefits and services reserved for union members that you can't get anywhere else:

  • You'll get the award-winning bi-monthly UMWA publication, the UMW Journal--the longest continually-published labor publication in North America. As a bonus, you'll also receive the annual UMWA Calendar.
  • You'll have access to a wide variety of benefits from Union Plus, including a low-interest UMWA credit card with no annual fee, low-interest loan programs, and a low-cost accident insurance program. To see all that's available from Union Plus, go to
  • You'll be eligible to receive the UMWA Activist Alert, an exclusive online e-action newsletter sent right to your computer with critical information about issues you need to know about and act upon.

Please enter the following information and click "Sign me up!" at the bottom of the page. We will send you an Associate UMWA Member information kit and registration form. Please fill out that form and send it back right away!
