Veteran Resources

Veterans are active and retired workers with the same concerns about a better life and a better nation as everyone else. Our veterans not only put on their country’s uniforms to protect our freedom, but they were also fighting for the things Americans and Canadians have a right to expect: good jobs, health care, retirement security, and a government that cares about working and middle-income families.


As International President and Vietnam veteran Cecil Roberts said, “Just as working families built America, so are we the ones who defend it.”


The UMWA is proud of our members who are veterans, and we are pleased to provide UMWA Veterans with these links they may find useful:
