Miners must take control of the struggle into their own hands!

Alabama miners are determined to fight, but the UMWA is isolating the strike and working to defeat it.

That's why we're building independent rank-and-file committees of miners, linked with committees of autoworkers, educators, and Amazon workers, which will break the isolation imposed by the corporate-controlled unions and unite the working class.

join the fight
Build a rank-and-file committee of miners!
