February 16, 2019 Message From Cecil Roberts – District 20 Events


The UMWA will hold two events in your area next week, and we need every active and retired miner to attend if you can.

First, there will be an Informational Conference this Tuesday, February 19th at the Bessemer Civic Center at 9 A.M. We will discuss our ongoing efforts to secure the pensions our retirees earned.

The next day, Wednesday February 20th, we will hold a rally at Kelly Ingram Park in support of our brothers and sisters at Mission Coal who are confronting that company’s bankruptcy. The Court is holding hearings that day. We want the bankruptcy judge to hear our voices! The rally will start at 7 A.M.

If you have any questions, call the District 20 office at 205-477-7500.



Below is the robocall President Roberts sent out February 16,2019 about the event.
