UMWA Day of Action - This Thursday, November 18

Date: November 16, 2021


The United Mine Workers of America is holding a National Day of Action on Thursday, Nov 18 at 10am local time. They really need help turning out people in Newport Beach, CA, but also, we encourage attendance at any of the locations listed below. The miners have been striking in Alabama since April 1 and fighting for all of the things we are fighting for: a decent wage, good healthcare, control over their schedules, vacation, sick leave.  Let us help them fight the hedge funds and other forces trying to break the union.

If you are able to attend at any of the following locations, send an email to Taylor Garland to RSVP. tgarland@afacwa.org.  We really need your help on this initiative to support of brothers and sisters in their efforts to improve their livelihood.
