The Paint Creek – Cabin Creek strike began on April 18, 1912, when the coal operators on Paint Creek rejected the demand of their unionized workers for a wage increase. This strike was one of the most dramatic and bloody conflicts in the early 20th century that lasted through July, 1913. With the number of casualties, it counts among the worst conflicts in American labor union history. #UMWA #UnionStrong #Miners Photo Credit : Register Herald

The bankruptcy at Westmoreland Coal does not just affect coal miners... Everyone is at risk. Call Congress today at 202-224-3121 and tell them to pass HR 934. American communities depend on it. #TheyEarnedIt #UMWA
