UMWA Canada

The United Mine Workers of America has represented Canadian coal miners for over 100 years.

Today the United Mine Workers of America represents active and retired miners in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Nova Scotia.

On June 11, a day of remembrance is held in Novia Scotia to honor William Davis, a coal miner who was killed during a long strike by the province’s coal miners against the British Empire Steel Corporation. The day is also a way to recognize all miners who were killed in the province’s coal mines.

Boundary Dam, a power plant located in Estevan, Saskatchewan, began capturing and storing carbon in the fall of 2014 and was the first power station in the world to install CCS technology on a commercial scale. UMWA members mine the coal that feeds this plant and provides a great example of what needs to be done to preserve long term coal jobs in North America.
