District 20

District 20 represents members in the southern part of the United States. District 20 has a long and proud history of representing the most diverse group of coal workers in the UMWA. Confronted with rapidly shrinking overseas coal markets, the membership in District 20 has crossed many hurdles yet continues to stay strong.

District 20 members’ pensions and health care are on the line with the recent bankruptcies. Click here to find out how you can join with your District 20 brothers and sisters to pressure the government to Keep the Promise to UMWA retirees.
