Make a Donation to the UMWA Strike Fund

As you are aware, hundreds of our UMWA Brothers and Sisters are currently engaged in an Unfair Labor Practice Strike against Warrior Met Coal in Alabama.

We have established a Strike Aid Fund to accept donations that will be used to help our Brothers and Sisters in their time of need.

The UMWA International contributed the first $50,000 to the fund. This is to provide additional support on top of the selective strike benefits they receive.
