In the history of American labor, the United Mine Workers of America has occupied a position of unquestioned leadership. The UMWA led the struggle to establish collective bargaining in American industrial life in the twentieth century. Its principles and policies, its strength and unity, and its outstanding leaders have been an inspiration to generations of working families for over one hundred years. The richness of the UMWA's history is a testament to the firm determination imbedded in the hearts and minds of the coal miners of North America to build and maintain a strong, enduring union.
Coal miners are my heroes. They endure so much each day and always stand up for what they believe in. They inspire me so much with their courage, bravery and solid determination. They are strong and never give up. Thank you guys so much for all you do and may your struggles never be forgotten.
I plan to help you guys when I can. You can help too and help them stand up for their rights and what they deserve. Coal mining is a thankless job, and for some its all they know.
