Who We Represent

The United Mine Workers of America is a diverse union with membership that includes coal miners, manufacturing workers, clean coal technicians, health care workers, corrections officers and public employees throughout the United States and Canada.

The UMWA is achieving significant success in providing workers with a voice on the job and financial security at home. Because of the union’s long-term emphasis on safety, UMWA members work in the safest environments in their respective industries. The UMWA continues the fight we began in 1890 for safe workplaces, good wages and benefits, and strong representation for working families throughout North America.
