Kenosha, April 9, 2021: Demand D.A. Graveley Drop The Charges Against Mr. Clyde McLemore!

912 56th Street, Kenosha County Courthouse – 10 A.M.

Mr. Clyde McLemore is the founder of the Black Lives Matter Lake County. He was falsely charged on February 20, 2021 by District Attorney Graveley, with attempted battery to a law enforcement officer — a felony — and disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. If convicted, McLemore could be imprisoned up to three years.

This is clearly a targeted attack on another Black freedom fighter. These charges are distorting the truth and only serve as an attempted halt to the Black Liberation movement, as we have seen so many times in the past. We stand with Mr. Clyde McLemore and against these bogus charges.

At the very same protests in Kenosha that Mr. McLemore attended, the police were allowed to brutalize protestors with no consequence. Kyle Rittenhouse murdered two people and shot a third, yet the cops let him walk away from the situation/turn himself in. Now Mr. McLemore, a Black freedom fighter, is being apprehended by the cops due to bogus claims.

Ms. Letetra Wideman, chair of the Black Lives Matter Lake County, says “I would like to understand how the police can put a warrant out for the arrest of Clyde for kicking a door but there was no charge for the police officer who shot my brother in the back seven times with his children in the car,” Wideman said. “If they don’t want to tell us in plain words that their actions are motivated by racism and systemic racism, then their actions have proven it without saying a word. They don’t have to say it verbally, we are constantly being shown that our lives do not matter.”

Additionally, to keep our communities safe, we will meet any hateful behavior, with direct ACTION. On Thursday April 8th, we will be staging a sit-in to DEMAND that the 3 employees responsible be terminated immediately.

We need you with us. Tomorrow we stand together to condemn hate in our community. We will protect the most marginalized people among us.

Support Mine Workers on Strike in Alabama!

United Mine Workers of America

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARCH 31, 2021

UMWA issues strike notice at Alabama’s Warrior Met Coal

[TRIANGLE, VA.] The United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) yesterday afternoon issued an unfair labor practice strike notice at Warrior Met Coal, Inc., to begin at 10:30 p.m. CDT on April 1, 2021. The notice covers more than 1,100 workers at all of the company’s operations, including the #4 mine, the #5 preparation plant, the #7 mine and its Central Shop.

“Our members are the reason Warrior Met even exists today,” UMWA International President Cecil E. Roberts said. “They made the sacrifices to bring this company out of the bankruptcy of Walter Energy in 2016.

“These productive, professional miners at Warrior Met mined the coal that meant the company could become successful again,” Roberts said. “And Warrior Met has capitalized on their hard work, earning tens of millions in profits for their Wall Street owners. They have even rewarded upper management with bonuses of up to $35,000 in recent weeks.

“But today, instead of rewarding the sacrifices and work of the miners, Warrior Met is seeking even further sacrifices from them, while demonstrating perhaps some of the worst labor-management relations we’ve seen in this industry since the days of the company town and company store,” Roberts said.

“Despite repeated attempts by our negotiating team to bridge the differences we have at the bargaining table, Warrior Met is going backwards,” Roberts said. “We have always been ready to reach a fair agreement that recognizes the sacrifices our members and their families made to keep this company alive. At this point, Warrior Met is not.”

The UMWA has filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board relating to Warrior Met’s conduct during negotiations, and expects to prevail on the merits of those charges.

UMWA dues-paying members who participate in picket line or other strike duty will receive bi-weekly strike assistance payments from the union’s Selective Strike fund. The union is procuring health care coverage for members and their families for the duration of the strike.

“Nobody in their right mind ever wants to strike,” Roberts said. “But sometimes the company’s actions and disregard for the welfare of workers and their families forces a strike. This is one of those times. Our members at Warrior Met should know that they have the full backing of the entire International Union and working families across Alabama, the United States and the world. Despite Warrior Met’s apparent appetite for this conflict, we will prevail.”
