District 12 – District In Action

District 12 in Action! 


District 12, with its deep roots in the United Mine Workers of America, holds a special place within the organization. This district serves as the dedicated representative of UMWA members in the Midwestern part of the United States. Its historical significance is evident, as many of the founding areas of the United Mine Workers of America can be found within District 12’s jurisdiction. Today, District 12 stands strong, bringing together UMWA members from the rich coalfields and diverse communities throughout western Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri.
