UMWA announces resignation of Levi Allen as Secretary-Treasurer
[TRIANGLE, VA.] United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) announced today that Levi Allen, the union’s Secretary-Treasurer since June, 2017, has resigned.
“The Secretary-Treasurer’s position requires full-time, undivided, moment-to-moment devotion,” Allen said.
“My family and my personal life require more of my time at this point; I am simply unable to give the job what it is due. I thank President Roberts for the opportunity to serve the union in that capacity for the last four years.”
“Levi has been a good steward of the UMWA’s finances,” UMWA International President Cecil E. Roberts said.
“That is the first priority for any Secretary-Treasurer of the union. He has also been a strong voice on behalf of the safety and health of our members.
“I thank him for his service in that position, and he will continue to serve the membership of the union in another capacity moving forward.”
