Working People Caravan to Alabama in Support of Striking Mine Workers at Warrior Met

Virginia AFL-CIO and several affiliates joined UMWA for the Alabama Rally for Warrior Met on Wednesday, April 6, 2022 in McCalla, Alabama! Members of the Mine Workers (UMWA) at Warrior Met Coal in Alabama have been on strike for one year, demanding a fair contract that honors the heavy sacrifices they made to make the company profitable. Members were joined by their families, labor leaders and other allies in McCalla, Alabama, to kick off the Caravan to Warrior.

Groups of union members from across the country hit the highways and crossed state lines to join their brothers, sisters and siblings in McCalla to show Warrior that not only will the workers not give up, but they also have the support and solidarity from working people and leaders well beyond Alabama. Check out the UMWA Facebook for coverage about the event.
