Coal Miners on Strike for 10 Months Vow Not to Be ‘Starved Out’
Updated On: Jan 27, 2022
Jan. 26, 2022 | STRIKES | About 1,100 coal miners in Alabama have entered 2022 still on strike, more than 10 months since they walked out back in April last year, making it the longest strike in the US since the Covid-19 pandemic began and the longest in Alabama’s history. Workers started the unfair labor practice strike over claims of bad faith bargaining by Warrior Met Coal over a new union contract. Since Warrior Met Coal took over the mines, the company has reported billions of dollars in revenue. “What they’ve said openly in negotiations is that they’re just going to starve us out. They’ve said … and this on record, that ‘we have the money to pay what you’re asking, we do not have the desire to.’ That’s the kind of company these guys have been working for…” The Guardian
