Lobby Day

Members Take to the Hill to Lobby for Pensions and Retiree Health Care

On March 16, 2016, more than 40 UMWA members and staff blanketed Capitol Hill to lobby their members of Congress and Senators to support S. 1714, the Miners Protection Act; and H.R. 2403, the Coal Healthcare and Pension Protection Act.

Joined by President Roberts and Secretary-Treasurer Kane, the members held 31 meetings in congressional offices, hallways, outside committee meetings rooms and wherever they could find their members of Congress.
