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

Westmoreland Coal miners worked a lifetime for a secure retirement. Now, because of bad bankruptcy laws, that are stacked against workers, their future is at risk. Congress MUST act now to preserve the retirement these miners earned. #TheyEarnedIt
