Member Resources

The United Mine Workers of America is more than just a labor organization, we are a family. Our members are spread out across North America, and through solidarity and unity we built the union to enrich the lives of every member and their family.



Member Benefits

The primary benefit of membership in the UMWA is a collective bargaining agreement ensuring a fair wage, safe workplace, job security and benefits for our members and their families. If you feel that your contract has been breached, be sure to contact your local union leadership and/or District Representative to start the grievance process.
