UMWA President Roberts statement on today's critical remarks by Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray

date: 
August 7, 2007

FAIRFAX, VA - “United Mine Workers of America International President Cecil E. Roberts issued the following statement today:

“It is very unfortunate that at a time when six miners remain trapped underground and rescuers, including members of the UMWA, are risking their lives to find them, Mr. Murray has chosen to take time away from his urgent responsibilities to conduct himself in this manner.

“We agree with the federal authorities that the number one priority right now must be the rescue of the trapped miners. A formal and comprehensive investigation will be required to answer questions about what took place at the Crandall Canyon Mine.”€
