Utility Workers march in support of United Mine Workers!

enews-uwua-mine-marchLast month, UWUA members, officers and staff marched arm in arm with our brothers and sisters of United Mine Workers of America on Capitol Hill. UMUA is proud to represent miners across several states, and in addition to our own efforts to push for legislation on their behalf, we have worked to support UMWA in their demand for the passage of The Miners Protection Act — legislation that will ensure the pensions and health care benefits of over 120,000 retired mine workers. This bipartisan bill will follow through on a 70-year promise by the United States government to guarantee the health care and pensions of retired coal miners. They’ve earned it!
